Last night my wife and I went on a date night to the opening night of the Risen movie. I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining and original the movie was about a familiar theme. It is too easy to be jaded about faith-based films, as they have not always be of high production and creativity. Seeing Easter through the eyes of a cynical Roman soldier works well for our postmodern culture. Though I am already a believer in Jesus’ physical resurrection, this movie actually encouraged my faith and my confidence in the reasonableness of Jesus’ resurrection, in the face of the other explanations. Do yourself a favour and give this movie a chance. If you enjoy it, help send it viral.
