4. It’s a ‘Get-People-into-Heaven’ Movie
Slide 4 of 4
The individuals interviewed in After Death describe an afterlife scene that mostly — although not fully — mirrors what is described in Scripture. Of course, the subject itself was once taboo in evangelical circles but has been embraced, at least by some, thanks to a series of high-profile movies and books. (Prominent author Lee Strobel, once a skeptic, wrote about it in a recent book that was turned into a film.)
Piper says the movie is evangelistic.
“This movie is the get-people-into-heaven movie,” Piper told Crosswalk. “At the very least, it’s a conversation starter. But at the very most, it’s somebody’s first step into the glory of God.”
After Death is the type of film that grabs your attention from the get-go and doesn’t let go, perfectly weaving personal testimonies with drama and scientific examination. The musical score gives the film a perfect, other-worldly feel.
No, we don’t need this film to prove that heaven exists. Scripture alone does that. Even so, the stories in After Death may affirm what you already believe. They also may give you a few chills along the way.
After Death is rated PG-13 for thematic material, including violent descriptions, some bloody images, and drug references.
