~Father of Lights DVD Review and Giveaway~

Father of Lights

About Father of Lights
FATHER OF LIGHTS chronicles the journey of filmmaker Darren Wilson and his team as they fearlessly travel the globe, far from the daily existence of the typical evangelical believer in the West. By thoughtfully documenting the stories of extraordinary believers and candidly filming miracles, visions and other supernatural occurrences, Wilson engages viewers in modern day examples of the true nature and character of God.  

Wilson gives honest access to his own spiritual questions as he tackles the religious misconceptions he has struggled with throughout his life.  “I went into making this film by asking the simple question: who is God? I wanted to know His character, His personality, and who He truly is. To answer this question, we had to peel back the many layers of religious garbage that has been passed onto him through generations. That He is angry. Vengeful. Wrathful. And in general, that He doesn’t like you very much. The truth, as you will see vibrantly in this film, is that He is the most loving, compassionate, and wonderful Father you can imagine.”

My Thoughts

I watched this film with my son and I asked him, how would you explain this film to another person.  Trying to get his perspective of the film, and he responds with "It is about this man, you just need to watch the movie".  I laugh to think about him trying to tell me about this film.  He is 14 but to ask him to tell you about something you would think he was much younger.  For me this was great informative film and I really enjoyed it.  I am not sure after allowing my 14 year old to watch with me that I would allow my younger girls to watch just yet.  Although this is more of a family film it is not really targeted to the very young.  I had questions while viewing this film and it brought to my attention that I needed to further study myself.  Even after having these thoughts I really enjoyed the film and I believe it may have answered some questions for me.
