NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson is encouraging Christian broadcasters and communicators to support the upcoming theatrical rerelease of Alone Yet Not Alone, which tells the riveting and inspiring true story of a German-American immigrant family as they face hardship, loss, and sorrow during the French & Indian War in 1755.
"We'll want to get behind this film," says Dr. Johnson. "Go yourself and take others to this movie. It's so important when it's released that we're there to support it. Everyone will be blessed by this story."
Set at a critical juncture in our nation's history, Alone Yet Not Alone recounts the journey of faith and survival of Barbara and Regina Leininger, who are captured by Delaware Indians in a raid on their home. 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.
"It’s a beautiful film with a strong Christian theme,” notes Joni Eareckson Tada of Joni and Friends, who sang the title song for the film.
"Alone Yet Not Alone is a riveting faith-filled movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat," adds Tony Perkins of Family Research Council.
"This is a movie that will elevate your spirit," says Dr. James Dobson of FamilyTalk.
"It's [a true story of faith] you'll be inspired to see," adds James Robison of LIFE Outreach International. "You will be blessed."
Earlier this year, during the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention, Dr. Jim Leininger, a descendant of the Leininger family, gave a moving presentation about his family and their testimony. This was followed by a special musical performance by Joni Eareckson Tada of “Alone Yet Not Alone,” the Academy Award nominated song composed by Bruce Broughton and written by Dennis Spiegel.
Alone Yet Not Alone will be released in theaters nationwide on June 13.
