The Jesus Revolution was the spring hit movie that took everyone by surprise. With an A+ CinemaScore and a 99% Rotten Tomatoes from the general audience, it clearly resonated with a LOT of people. My family had the opportunity to see it in the theater, but many people couldn’t for various reasons. I’m excited to partner with Kingdom Story Company to draw attention to the fact that Jesus Revolution will be released on Digital starting 4/25. That means you will be able to view it on DVD, Blu-ray, or through On Demand streaming.
What is Jesus Revolution about?
Based on true events and real people portrayed by some pretty well-known actors (Kelsey Grammer, Jonathan Roumie) Jesus Revolution tells the story of a young Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) who is searching for all the right things in all the wrong places: until he meets Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie-street-preacher. Frisbee connects with Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer) through his daughter and challenges everything Smith thought he believed about running a successful church. Frisbee and his friends cause Smith to reevaluate his preconceived notions about what the job of a church is, who a pastor should be serving and how to act more Christ-like when encountering people he doesn’t see eye to eye with.
Frisbee and Smith create an unlikely partnership and the church’s following explodes in numbers. The church begins gathering so much attention, Time Magazine sends a reporter out to cover the phenomenon and winds up titling the issue “Jesus Revolution”. The story follows the revival and explores some of the unintended consequences of all the attention the participants received.
Jesus Revolution will be available on digital 4/25.
My whole family really enjoyed the movie and we are looking forward to experiencing it again when it comes out on Blu-ray. An added treat is that the Blu-ray edition will have some behind the scenes content, which is always my favorite “extra”. If you haven’t seen Jesus Revolution, I encourage you to stream or purchase it here and enjoy it in the comfort of your own living room. (If you are also a fan of The Chosen, keep an eye out for a special cameo from one of your favorite “apostles” in the middle of the movie!)
