I first saw this movie late one night on Christian TV. What an impact the opening scenes had on me! I won't spoil it for you here, but it really gets the movie off to a great start. A Christian reluctant to share his Faith with non-Christians is motivated to "join the harvest".
I can tell you the basic story is set at a modern-day university (shot on location at Arkansas State University). A group of evangelical college students attend a secular philosophy club meeting where one of their own is defending the existence of God. Unfortunately, this young man, while sincere, did not prepare properly for such an encounter and winds up being ridiculed mercilessly. One verse comes to mind. It is often misused to support secular scholastical study as "Study to show thyself approved". However in proper Biblical context it is "Study to show thyself approved, rightly presenting the Word of Truth accurately" (paraphrased). This student simply didn't do his homework.
After the defeat, another of the students decides to present a controversial topic based upon an archived paper from a former student of the same university. He studies hard to attempt to present the material properly. But he repeatedly challenges the philosophy group's organizers, telling them of their approaching comeuppance. The leaders of the philosophy group decide to perform a pre-emptive strike against the student by discrediting his personal character. This sets the stage for the reluctant evangelical to step up to the plate.
He's not allowed to escape. A seemingly kind lady proceeds to chide him relentlessly for his reluctance and demands that he present the advertised material. What are her true intentions? She doesn't seem friendly at all and the philosophy group is amused at her seemingly hostile statements. There are surprises in store for everyone.
Regarding the presentation, the material is Biblically accurate and proper in context. There is no date-setting in the film as the overall theme is "signs of the times". Beyond that, there is a potentially plausible theory, rooted in the regathering of Israel, (Isaiah 66:8, Ezekiel 36:24, Amos 9:15 et al), and their eventual awakening of Hosea 6:2. Given that the rebirth of national Israel is now an historical fact, the prophetical accuracy of Isaiah 66:8 and Hosea 6:2 (etc) cannot be denied.
I would have preferred to own this video in DVD format as most of my library is now DVD. A wide-screen version would have been nice but I don't know if the movie was shot in that format. Hopefully, a DVD version with trailers, commentaries, and other bonus materials will be made available in the near future. I recommend this movie for all ages, and especially for youth groups and college-aged students. Enjoy!
