Producer Andy Erwin Reveals the Secret Sauce of the “Jesus Revolution” Movie

The Wally Show sat down to discuss Jesus Revolution with producer Andy Erwin of I Can Only Imagine and American Underdog.

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.
