Kingdom Men Rising, from prominent pastor Dr. Tony Evans had a good two-day run in theaters nationwide at the end of April, generating almost $1.2 million in limited release. According to Box Office Mojo, that puts the documentary in 29th place all-time for productions released through distributor Fathom Events, which specializes in limited engagements of faith-based fare like this, as well as live theater shows and sporting events.

The film delves into what it means to be a Godly man in a culture that is increasingly less Christian, challenging men to get off the sidelines and engage in their marriages, families and communities. Evans, who is senior pastor at Oak Cliff Fellowship in Dallas, TX, leads the discussions and features two interviews with important influencers in his own life: his father and a man who was a mentor during his youth in Baltimore, MD; these sections of the film give a good sense of what shaped Evans into the man he is today.

Others included in the documentary are prominent Believers like Grammy-winning musicians Lecrae and Kirk Franklin, former pro football players Tim Brown, Jon Kitna and Troy Vincent, Super Bowl-winning coach Tony Dungy and actress Priscilla Shirer, who is Evans' daughter. They share compelling testimonies, some of which are extremely personal and touching. It is all sure to edify and motivate viewers.

If you missed the film, there's good news: it will be made available for digital streaming events from June 1 through July 15. And the pricing is quite reasonable at just $79 per group showing. You can find out more by contacting the filmmakers via their website. Christian Film Blog recommends you do.
