Jerusalem on the BIG Screen


A new giant-screen film about Jerusalem is being released in IMAX and other large-screen theaters beginning this month. Jerusalem is not only beautiful and fascinating, it's an incredibly important city that holds a pivotal role in the world historically, spiritually, and politically.

I was blessed to live in Jerusalem for four months and it taught me so much. After coming back to the States, I remember thinking, "I wish everyone could visit and understand this great city." While travel to Jerusalem may not be realistic for a lot of people, perhaps this movie can help increase understanding of this important place in the world.

I love this portion of the filmmaker's statement:

"Our goal is to look at the roots of the universal attachment to Jerusalem: Jewish, Christian and Muslim. We hope the juxtaposition of these different religions and cultures – all with profound spiritual and historical connections to the city – will reveal how much Jews, Christians and Muslims have in common and inspire all of us to better understand each other."

Visit jerusalemthemovie.com to find a theater playing the film near you.
