As the third installment in the GOD’S NOT DEAD series, A LIGHT IN DARKNESS picks up where GOD’S NOT DEAD 2 ended and builds a completely new and fresh story line centered around a tragedy sparked by vandalism at St. James Church—engulfing nearby Hadleigh College in controversy and challenging relationships in the community and the faith of key characters. And by shining a light on timely topics like religious liberty and freedom of speech, GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS also challenges Christians to reconsider how they are called to engage the world and be the light of Christ in the darkness.
Produced and distributed by Pure Flix (WOODLAWN, DO YOU BELIEVE?, THE CASE FOR CHRIST, SAMSON), A LIGHT IN DARKNESS is both written and directed by newcomer Michael Mason, who gives the film an even more polished look and feel than its two franchise predecessors. Similarly, the relatively large ensemble cast—featuring several characters from both GOD’S NOT DEAD and GOD’S NOT DEAD 2—take it up a notch, including: David A.R. White (GOD’S NOT DEAD 1 & 2, REVELATION ROAD 1 & 2) as Pastor Dave Hill; John Corbett (ALL SAINTS, “Sex in the City,” MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 1 & 2) as Dave’s brother, Pearce; Shane Harper (GOD’S NOT DEAD 1, “The Passion”) as college ministry leader Josh Wheaton; Ted McGinley (DO YOU BELIEVE?, “Happy Days,” “The Love Boat”) as college chancellor Tom Ellsworth; Benjamin Onyango (GOD’S NOT DEAD 1 & 2) as Reverend Jude; Jennifer Taylor (“Two and a Half Men”) as Meg Harvey; Tatum O’Neal (PAPER MOON, THE BAD NEWS BEARS) as Barbara Solomon; Mike C. Manning (WWJD WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? THE JOURNEY CONTINUES) as Adam; Samantha Boscarino (“Good Luck Charlie”) as Keaton; and Judge Jeanine Pirro as herself.
