Good Box Office Showing for "Palau: The Movie"
This biopic about the great evangelist makes the weekend Top-40 despite limited release and playing just one day.
The movie tracks Luis Palau's journey of faith from his boyhood in Argentina to an adult life devoted to international evangelism. From writer/director Kevin Knoblock, it features some particularly compelling moments from Palau's years planting churches and preaching in Colombia in the 1960s.
With more than half a century in ministry, Luis Palau has shared the Gospel of Christ with tens of millions of people in 75 countries. Now 84 years old, he is currently battling stage four lung cancer, but got what his son called an "encouraging" reportafter his most recent checkup with doctors.
