Faith-Based Movies Getting the Public's Attention

"A faith-based movie releasing this month is sure to get the attention of the movie-going public!
Biblically-themed movies are likely to continue being produced for the big screen.

Ben Hur as a fictional Jewish prince battling the Roman empire in the first century AD, has a life-changing encounter with the biblical Jesus.

Based on the best-selling novel by Lew Wallace, the movie version of 1959, won 11 academy awards!

Hollywood has more Bible movies in the works, including a movie based on the life of the Apostle Paul, being produced by Academy Award winners Ben Affleck and Matt Damon—and featuring Hugh Jackman in the starring role as Paul.

Chris Stone, founder of Faith Driven Consumer said “seventeen percent, that’s 41 million people, say their faith is a leading driver for daily decisions, including entertainment."

The Bible—engaging the culture in its ongoing impact and influence!"
