A church destroyed. A congregation silenced. A relationship shattered. Yet even in life's darkest valleys, a small flame can light the way toward healing and hope. A deadly fire rips through St. James Church, devastating the congregation and Pastor Dave. Adjoining Hadleigh University uses the tragedy to kick the congregation off campus. The escalating controversy creates a dilemma for the small church—can Christians fight for their rights and be the light for Christ at the same time? Facing a court case and his own struggle to see Christ's light in heartbreak, Dave asks for help from Pearce, his estranged brother—a big-city lawyer and an atheist—to fight for the church's right to exist. The family reunion opens old wounds, as the brothers wrestle with the questions that pulled them apart years ago: Is God really good all the time? Where is God when bad things happen? Can Christ really heal the brokenhearted? Pure Flix presents God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness—featuring a star-studded cast, including David A.R. White, John Corbett, Ted McGinley, Shane Harper, Jennifer Taylor, Benjamin Onyango, with special appearances by Dr. Cissy Houston and Tatum O'Neal.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that God's Not Dead: A Light in the Darkness is the third film in the successful faith-based God's Not Dead series. Like its predecessors, this one concentrates on issues of church and state; this time, they revolve around a public university trying to close a controversy-sparking church on campus. Although there's no swearing or sex, characters do flirt, hold hands, and kiss, and there's a scene or two of implied drinking by college-age students (red Solo cups are visible), as well as of an adult drinking beer. And there's some violence, including vandalism that leads to a fire and a dramatic/potentially scary death, plus a man punching a pastor and vice versa. While the movie ultimately has a message of hope and peace, there are also obvious anti-protest/"social justice" themes, in that characters claim that protest culture divides instead of unites and that Christians who follow Jesus' example are uniquely qualified to fight for justice and the oppressed. David A.R. White and John Corbett co-star.
