NASHVILLE, Aug. 26, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- What if the great legends and founding fathers of the Christian Church got it wrong? What if Martin Luther's world-changing 95 Theses are actually incomplete?
Through 2-D and 3-D animation as well as live action, LET THE LION ROAR takes audiences on a journey that begins with Luther (Jason Burkey) and Calvin (Kevin Sorbo), then travels back 1,000 years earlier to fathers of the faith like Augustine of Hippo (Eric Roberts), Bishop Hilary of Pointiers (John Schneider) and Ambrose of Milan (Brad Stine). Through their words, we see and hear exactly how a supernatural conspiracy wove false beliefs into the very fabric of the Church -- lies that keep the Church today from fulfilling God's purpose.
Churches have the opportunity to screen this film for their entire congregation now, before the film is available on-demand or in-stores. "The church is the audience for this film which reveals in a profound way a central misstep of the early church which affects Israel to this day," said Dan Wright, Managing Partner of Inspire Church Resources. "We're able to equip a church with everything they need to discover this powerful truth for themselves." Church kits are available at www.InspireResourcesGroup.com or by calling 615-835-3668.
"This film deals with some very well-known, famous and important founders and fathers of church history who also had these incredibly anti-Semitic moments," says actor Brad Stine, who plays Ambrose of Milan. "Frankly, it's shocking. [But] If you're a Christian, you should know what you believe. You've committed your life to this thing; you need to know all of its flaws. And these were brilliant men, who could also be brilliantly wrong."
Shot in multiple locations and featuring a cast and crew of more than 200, LET THE LION ROAR exposes the lie that narrator and founder of Roaring Lion Productions Derek Frank says cripples the Church's effectiveness -- the lie that the Church has replaced the Jews as God's chosen people.
"The demonic conspiracy that colluded throughout history goes beyond all reckoning," says Derek Frank, narrator and founder of Roaring Lion. "Only when this sinister lie is exposed will the church be revived and have the power it should have."
In a year that has seen biblical blockbusters such as God's Not Dead, Noah and Son of God storm the box office, LET THE LION ROAR is a welcome addition to Hollywood's interpretation of the Bible and the faith.
"When my character says something about the church sleeping while God is weeping, you know, we can't sleep. We gotta get up," says actor and GRAMMY-nominated singer Jaci Velasquez, who portrays a modern Christian. "The church has been sleeping for far too long."
