A church destroyed. A congregation silenced. A relationship shattered. Yet even in life's darkest valleys, a small flame can light the way toward healing and hope.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is the third and apparently final installment in the Christian drama series. David A.R. White, who played a supporting character in the first two, is the lead here, and the notable and recognizable addition to the cast this time is John Corbett. The tone is a bit more subdued than the previous two films, but this is still one that is generally only for those faith-based audiences. There is some brief mild violence, and most parents will find this safe viewing for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...it has a slightly more complex story, and actually interrogates some of the assumptions behind the stifling Christian persecution complex. A lot of grappling happens.

The Guardian Full Review
Below Average ...isn't quite as regrettable as the films that have come before it but it's still a slog. By the end of the movie, when the brothers are reunited, the unintentional manslaughter is forgiven and the entire campus of young people is glued to theology discussions on YouTube, it will take the will of the Lord to keep most audience members from snickering.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When a deadly fire rips through St. James Church, devastating the congregation and Reverend Dave (David A.R. White), adjoining Hadleigh University uses the tragedy to try and kick the house of worship off campus. Battle lines are quickly drawn between the small church and the community, pitting Rev. Dave against his longtime friend Thomas Ellsworth (Ted McGinley), the university president, while further estranging college student Keaton (Samantha Boscarino), a member of St. James' campus ministry, from the Christian faith she has come to question.

Facing a court case and his own struggle to see Christ's light in heartbreak, Rev. Dave asks for help from his estranged brother Pearce (John Corbett), a big-city lawyer turned atheist, to fight for his brother's church to rebuild. The family reunion opens old wounds, as the brothers wrestle with the questions that pulled them apart years ago: Is God really good all the time? Where is God when bad things happen? Can Christ really heal the brokenhearted? Even while grappling with these personal issues, Rev. Dave must face another dilemma, turning to his former protege Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper) for wisdom in answering the thorniest practical question before him: Can Christians fight for their rights and still be a loving example for Christ at the same time?
