This post made possible by the LEFT BEHIND film. All opinions are my own.
I love to read. It’s one of my all time favorite pastimes. When I first became a Christian, in 1997, one of the first Christian book series I read was LEFT BEHIND, by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. I was excited, then to learn that the LEFT BEHIND film is coming to the big screen!
Of course, you might think… wait, didn’t they already make a movie? The short answer is yes. However, the previous film was a straight to DVD release (in 2001) and never saw time on the silver screen. This film, set to release on October 3rd, will! Which is exciting!
LEFT BEHIND follows Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage) who is piloting a commercial airliner just hours after the Rapture when millions of people around the globe simply vanish. Thirty thousand feet over the Atlantic, Rayford is faced with a damaged plane, terrified passengers, and a desperate desire to get back to his family. On the ground, his daughter, Chloe Steele (Cassi Thomson) is among those leftbehind, forced to navigate a world of madness as she searches for her lost mother and brother. Shot mostly in and around Baton Rouge, LA., LEFT BEHIND was produced by Paul Lalonde and Michael Walker and co-written by Paul Lalonde and John Patus. Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson served as an executive producer, as well.
When asked about the film, Jerry Jenkins said, “I believe it does justice to the novel and will renew interest in the entire series. Tim LaHaye said, “It is the best movie I have ever seen on the rapture.” That’s pretty high praise of the movie coming from the authors of the co-authors of the New York Times bestselling book series! The book series, based on the Bible, s has been published in 32 languages and has sold more than 65 million copies, making it one of the best selling series of all time.
Check out the trailer…
It is my prayer that the film proves to be a conversation starter among many about eternity and salvation.
