Calling all Sorbo fans.
Let There Be Light is a faith film written, directed and produced by husband-wife team Kevin and Sam Sorbo.
The story centers on Sol Harkins, whose atheism is fueled by the loss of his son to childhood cancer. His books and debates attack Christianity, and his drinking only increases the isolation between Sol and his believing ex-wife, Katy. Things reach a crisis point when Sol survives a car crash which left him clinically dead for four minutes.
It’s not just a miracle that he is alive, but there’s a miraculous change in his heart as well.
A life-changing miracle is a fitting plot point for a film which might never have been made, but for God intervening in circumstances. According to Sam, the miracles include securing Dan Gordon, the award-winning writer of feature films Hurricane, Wyatt Earp, and others; and finding backing for the film from Sean Hannity–his first time out as executive producer of a feature film.
Join us for a conversation with the Sorbo’s on Cradle My Heart Radio. We’ll talk about their very different journeys to faith in Jesus Christ, the role of films and entertainment in shaping culture, and how the suffering and pain of loss are often the greatest blessings in disguise. And we’ll connect the dots between the atheist mindset and the devaluing of life through abortion, as Kevin shares the message he often delivers on behalf of pregnancy help centers for their annual fundraising events.
