Scheduled for release in theaters nationwide on June 13, Alone Yet Not Alone tells the inspiring true story of Barbara and Regina Leininger and their journey of faith and survival during the French & Indian War in 1755. Captured by Delaware Indians in a raid on their home and transported through more than 300 miles of wilderness to Ohio, the sisters are sustained only by their abiding trust in God and their hope of escape against all odds to be reunited with their family.
Earlier this year, during the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention, Dr. Jim Leininger gave a moving presentation about his family and their testimony. This was followed by a special musical performance by Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO of Joni and Friends, of “Alone Yet Not Alone,” the Academy Award nominated song from the movie, composed by Bruce Broughton and written by Dennis Spiegel.
Though the song’s Academy Award nomination was later rescinded, Tada said she was grateful for the attention the nomination brought to the song and the inspirational film behind it.
“The decision by the Academy to rescind the nomination may well bring even further attention,” she stated back in January, “and I only hope it helps to further extend the message and impact of the song.”
“It’s a beautiful film with a strong Christian theme,” added Tada.
Directly below is a clip from the NRB 2014 Convention that features Dr. Leininger's presentation and Tada's performance of “Alone Yet Not Alone.” The presentations took place during the convention’s Sunday Worship Service, February 23, in Nashville, TN. Also below is a trailer for the movie.
