A touching and stunning story of the friendship and brotherhood of Apostle Paul and Dr. Luke (the writer of one of the gospels and some of Paul’s letters). This scripted story of Paul aims to and shines bright Christ’s love, faith, and hope that is able to overcome all tragedies and sufferings, and demonstrates the unfailing joy that sustains the souls of true believers in such sufferings, inspiring them (and us) to persevere because, our hope is alive and undying even in the darkest of times, and that God’s joy, indeed, is the source of our strength—what a powerful theme for such a time as this!
In applaud of the DVD version, it is worth mentioning the special features on the DVD that accompanied the motion picture, because, they not only showcase the other wonderful works by AFFIRM FILMS (previews), they also bring to light the elements that helped visually amplify the story and its message in a fashion that pierces the soul—and the features accomplish this brilliantly.
The full scope of special features include—Deleted Scenes; The Path of the Apostle: Adapting Paul; Recreating First Century Rome; An Extraordinary Friendship: Luke & Paul; Previews (of other Affirm Films).
From start to finish—movie and special features—everything about Paul The Apostle Of Christ DVD aims to achieve beyond delighting a viewer, but impresses upon the heart the striking awareness of what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ. A brilliantly written and produced movie!
*Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. My appreciation to Michael Conrad of Lovell-Fairchild Communications for a free DVD copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
