Acts of God

SOMETIMES GOD GIVES US MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE... ALONE.

Sometimes God gives us more than we can handle...alone.

A moment of crisis changes everything. One stormy night a sudden, shattering collision takes an innocent life. Now six people find their paths intertwined by the accident and hard questions reflected in their own lives. Why do such tragedies occur? If God is good, why does He allow so much pain? As each of them struggle through the aftermath, threads of hope and faith and the support of close friends become the lifeline to a strength they could never find alone. Nationally esteemed pastor and author Bob Russell is featured as himself in a powerfully dramatic film that brings his teachings to vivid life.

 

SEVEN LIVES. ONE QUESTION. WHY?

 
 
Our church carefully selects a post-Easter series each year designed to appeal broadly to both insiders and guests. This year, we chose Bob Russell’s Acts of God, which became the best-attended weekend teaching series we’ve ever experienced. The potent themes of suffering and hardship, unpacked so well in Bob’s book, could not be more real-world. The life of Joseph from Genesis (on which the series is based) is compelling and inviting to preach, especially with the valuable teaching notes Bob created. Also, the Acts of God film, which is utilized in the group material, is gritty and well done.

Life is hard. People need help and hope. I recommend Acts of God to every church!
