Faith is a strong motivator. It can inspire people to keep going in the face of insurmountable odds, be an anchor for them in their darkest of times, and the instigator of something good in their lives. Everyone perceives God in a different way and holds a unique idea of who God is to them. Every year, all sorts of movies are released, from the tales of superheroes to the stories of doomed romance. The number of movies that are based on faith and religion is rather scarce, forget the ones with some true substance. While most stories portray faith and hope in one way or another, they don’t explicitly fall under the category of Christian films. I mean, you wouldn’t call ‘The Conjuring’ a Christian movie, even when it features the vanquishing of evil with the help of the Lord!
If you are someone who keeps an eye out for the films whose idea is founded in faith, then look no further. Here, we have compiled a list of upcoming new Christian film releases coming out in 2019. We hope that some of these latest Christian movies are as good some of the recent ones.
14. The Follower (2019)
This comedy film follows a rather eccentric theme and features a well-known story in the Bible. The name of Elijah and Elisha are familiar to everyone. The former was a prophet, while the latter was his disciple, who later took the mantle of the prophet. This film retells this story, though not literally, in the modern-day setting. The aspect that sets it apart the most is that it is a comedy, though not a satire. It will be interesting to see how they have formed their characters based on these famous prophets, and what message they can deliver from their change of environs. It stars Dean Cain, Michael Sigler and Timothy E. Goodwin in the lead roles.
13. Let Go and Let God (2019)
The world is full of differences. Caste, colour, gender, profession, faith- there is a multitude of things that separate people from one another. And, it is the most basic human emotions that bring us together, too. This film tells the story of two people who come from completely different worlds. However, when they suffer the death of their loved ones, they go through shared experience- grief. It is this grief that makes them question the idea of God and they wonder if the faith they held on to for so long was worth anything. But then, they go through another shared experience that not only reignites their lost faith but also, redefines its definition for them.
