    Must-See Christian Film ‘Overcomer’ in Theatres Now

    “Overcomer,” the new film by the Kendrick Brothers (Courageous, Fireproof, War Room) is now officially showing in a theater near you.

    The movie asks the question, ‘What do you allow to define you?” and features actor’s Thomas Hill, Alex Kendrick, and Priscilla Shier, a Women’s Bible teacher, author, and speaker.

    ‘Overcomer’ follows the journey of a highschool basketball team and their coach after the team loses most of their players. 

    The film follows a believer’s encouraging relationship with Christ, and his decision to place his identity in Christ despite circumstances.

    ‘Overcomer’ stresses the idea that “whatever we give our heart to defines us.” The movie reminds us as believers that we must keep Jesus Christ on the throne of our hearts and in our lives.

    For the unbelievers, it asks the question, “if everything was taken from you…. who are you?” When we displace Jesus as Lord and when we do not have a firm identity as sons and daughters of God, the foundation of our lives can be easily shaken when unfavorable circumstances arise.

    The film has heavy themes of family, faith, forgiveness, hope, redemption, and overcoming trials.

    The film description for “Overcomer” reads:

    “Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down and hundreds of families leave their town, John questions how he and his family will face an uncertain future. After reluctantly agreeing to coach cross-country, John and his wife, Amy, meet an aspiring athlete who’s pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new-found friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.”

    This clip from the film, that features actor Thomas Hill, in one of the viewer’s favorite, and most powerful moments from the film. 

    I love seeing Christian movies that make it to the box office and am excited to spread the news of the revival that is taking place in Hollywood.

    God is bringing more faith-based and inspirational films to the big screen and box office which is encouraging to see. I believe that there will be more films like this, such as PI founder Nicole Weider’s film “Catching Faith 2,” and more.
