Christian Films Coming Out August 2013

Aug 18, 2013

"Actors, directors and producers have worked hard and I am impressed with many of the films that are Christian-based."

Here are some of the Christian movies scheduled for release on DVD and Blu-Ray this month! There are a variety of films that focus on different themes, including children in foster care, spiritual demons, evolution, children slavery in India, marriage and adventure. Actors, directors and producers have worked hard and I am impressed with many of the films that are Christian-based.

“The Truth" 1 Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

This verse reminds me that no matter what I’m doing through out my day, I need to be mindful to give thanks to God. I’m thankful for Christian films!

Rating: Not Rated

Category: Thriller

Jason is married and has seen very strange visions throughout his life. They cause him to live in daily fear as each nightmare unfolds in his mind. His wife is unsettled and decides to use ancient spiritual rituals to help Jason. This movie is for thrill-seekers who are searching for a Christian perspective on spiritual demons. I would not recommend this film for children.

Evolution vs. God

Re-released to DVD: August 13, 2013

Released for Download: July 9, 2013

Rating: Not Rated

When I first watched the trailer for this movie, I immediately thought of the people I know who love to debate evolution and creation. This 45-minute documentary shares the perspectives of the top evolutionary scientists and atheists and overall debunks evolution. I found the trailer informative and am looking forward to watching this film when it is available.
