When art meets agenda in Christian movies, there is usually a clear loser and, unfortunately, it is almost always the art. Christian movies have to share the gospel but that moment usually feels heavy handed or forced. The genius of the movie, Jesus Revolution from the Erwin Brothers, is that the agenda IS the art since it is a historical movie about faith from the late 60s and 70s. The Gospel doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb because faith is the main premise of the movie so, it’s a more natural fit.
One of the things to love is that you don’t have to be a believer to be in an Erwin Brothers film. Their set is as much an outreach to the actors as the movie is to the viewers.
