Father of Lights DVD Review & Giveaway

 I love DVD's that make me feel good inside and out. I also enjoy documentaries that get me thinking. Thanks to FlyBy Promotions, I was able to preview "Father of Lights," a film about the true nature of God.

About Father of Lights
Wanderlust Productions
(released 10/15)
"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.

About Wanderlust Productions
Wanderlust Productions is a video production company focusing on creating content for various media that highlights, informs, and is designed to spiritually stretch our audience. Created by Darren Wilson, Professor at Judson University, Wanderlust's focus is on telling stories that inspire and agitate, that are unwavering in their honesty yet are emotionally compelling. While our content will always be Christian in nature, we are not afraid to explore themes, concepts, or areas that may be considered risky by the Christian establishment. Wanderlust prides itself on its willingness to put the story above the message. That being said, the message will never waver.

Father of Lights is the third film in a trilogy that includes "Furious Love" and "Finger of God." I have not yet seen the previous films but am looking forward to it now after watching Father of Lights. This documentary had an incredible impact on both my husband Mark and myself.

This is such an powerful documentary! Mark and I sat in silence as we watched the different stories, from a witch doctor, a notorious Chicago gang leader, and a Hindu holy man came to know the Lord and who He is. Watching the former gang member in tears as he talks about God gave me a chill. Here is a guy who has probably done some pretty horrible things, but now he is reborn in Christ. It shows me that with God, anything is possible!

You can not watch this movie without leaving with the desire to spread the word of the Gospel to all you meet. I am going to give my copy to my Pastor. Our church shows a lot of free movies and this one might be one he adds to the list. 

Father of Lights is not rated,but due to some of the subject matter, I would suggest viewing it before allowing your children to watch.  Older kids and teenagers would probably be OK.
