Courageous, The Movie - #3296 - VIDEO: Christian-Themed Movie 'Courageous' Resonates With Audiences Across America - The Blaze


Christian-Themed Movie 'Courageous' Resonates with Audiences Across America - This clip has been viewed 681,265 times, the movie came in 5th this weekend. Have you heard about “Courageous,” the new, Christian-themed movie that opened with great success this past weekend? The film — produced by Sherwood Pictures, the media division of Sherwood Baptist Church – tackles the challenges surrounding fatherhood. The movie delves into the stories of four law enforcement officers. The men, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller, are good at what they do, but they face a major challenge at home: Learning how to be good and active fathers. Here’s more of the synopsis from the movie’s official web site: While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark. When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God … and to their children? This is the fourth film to come from the Albany, Georgia-based Sherwood Baptist Church. In 2006, the house of worship spent $10,000 making “Facing the Giants,” which grossed $10 million in the end. Another popular movie Sherwood produced, “Fireproof,” was $500,000 to create, though it grossed a large sum — $33 million. It appears “Courageous” is destined for success as well.

Over the weekend, “Courageous,” which was produced with only $2 million, premiered in fifth place among all movies. Already, the movie has earned $8.8 million, which is $2 million above the opening income earned by “Fireproof.” Read more, see more clips.........  AW:  Please go see this movie, then take someone else, or encourage others to see it as well.  I saw it Sunday, loved it so much, our fathers are so important to us, we need to encourage them as much as possible.
