Among the most common criticisms of Christian films in the past has been the appearance or feel of cheapness. Not that everyone isn’t trying their best, but Christian films made on a shoestring budget often don’t have the ability to dazzle audiences visually. What’s more, there are times when these movies are produced by people who are not the most well-versed in Hollywood productions. Why don’t Christian films have the look of today’s most popular movies and TV shows? Many people would point to the budget of these films as Exhibit A. So how much are these Christian films made for and why is it relatively low? We have those answers and more.

As we approach the Easter weekend, we encourage you to take advantage of any festivities at your church or in your area. Does your church put on re-enactments? Grab a robe and take part. On the other hand, perhaps dressing up in Biblical-era costumes is a bit too much for you and your kin. Why not try something easier, like watching Christian Easter movies for families? Most of the films in this genre are adaptations of Bible stories, but there are others set in the current day which seek to explain the relevance of Jesus’ death on the cross. Here are some of our favorite Christian Easter movies for families.

Hopefully by now you’re used to writing the correct year on forms and your New Year’s resolutions aren’t completely shattered.

Western society has had no shortage of pastors and faith leaders over the last few centuries. A certain number of these men have become famous evangelists who have affected tens of millions of lives around the world. What makes one an evangelist as opposed to a theologian, pastor, or educator? Many of these evangelists would fit into one or more of these categories. What makes a speaker or pastor an evangelist is that he spends much of his time trying to reach others with the gospel. This has often been accomplished during revivals, conferences, and other forms of large-scale meetings. Here are some of the most famous evangelists who have faithfully preached the Word in the last few hundred years.

It’s a Friday night and you and your family want to go see a movie at your local theater. The only problem is your theater isn’t playing anything that A) interests each member of your family and B) is safe for younger viewers. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had more Christian movies to see in theaters? Not just because they are safe for your family or because they often depict people like yourself as the hero, but because Christians have stories worth telling too. You may feel like there isn’t much you can do to help put more Christian movies in theaters, but you’d be wrong. Thanks to the entertainment structure we have today and the help of the internet, you’re more powerful than you can imagine.
