Unstoppable Movie Event
by Phil Boatwright

Kirk Cameron addresses the age-old question, “Why does God allow bad things to happen?” in this thoughtful, heartfelt documentary from Provident Films. Unstoppable will be broadcast from the Vines Center at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA on Tuesday, Sept, 24 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT and tape delayed at 7:00pm MT/8:00pm PT. The event will feature music from guests that include Dove-nominated artist Warren Barfield, whose song Love is Not a Fight was featured in the film Fireproof.

FILM SYNOPSIS: The death of a close friend’s son sparked actor/producer Kirk Cameron to take a spiritual journey through scripture. Using dramatized Bible parables that reflect the same sufferings we face today, Mr. Cameron takes his scholarly sojourn, analyzing the following questions: Are the details of life governed merely by happenstance? Are they a part of a great plan? Do things happen by chance or do they purposely serve to develop our nature? And through all our suffering, where is God?

Having met with success utilizing this same docu-drama format in Monumental, which looked at America’s Bible-infused beginnings, Mr. Cameron (Growing Pains, Left Behind) personalizes this production and makes us all a part of his inner circle.

PREVIEW REVIEW: Unstoppable is the most riveting and inspiring documentary I’ve seen in years from a technical, artistic and spiritual perspective. For me, it was 60-minutes of passionate examination that asserts we are more than mental and physical beings, and that our Creator is with us through the good and the bad: “…in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

I was also reminded of the need for Bible study in order to communicate these truths to a conflicted and confused world. Want to counter the influence of the secular culture? Want to be able to discuss spiritual matters? Want peace and spiritual strength through difficult times? Want the ability to aid hurting friends and foes? The film makes it clear that as we delve into the scriptures, we find true apps dealing with life’s adventures, joys and sorrows.

Not yet rated, I found nothing objectionable. That said, one dramatization depicts Cain killing Able. This may frighten little ones.
