It is with a deep sense of gratitude to God that we report our inaugural feature film has climbed onto the bestseller list at Barnes & Noble. The New York-based bookstore is offering the DVD of Miracle on Christmas via its online arm and, as you can see in the picture below, it has joined the ranks of the top selling movies and television shows; it currently ranks number 43. (Update: on Sunday, December 19th, it climbed to number 26 and then on Monday, December 20th went to 22.)

The film, written and directed by yours truly, came out last Christmas and tells the tale of a Christian woman struggling with her faith because of trials until a surprise visitor changes everything. Christian actress Erin Bethea stars as said woman and plays opposite Jason Burkey, who is her husband in the movie, while Brett Varvel portrays the visitor. Based loosely on our own experiences, the picture features some heartrending moments, to be sure, but it endeavors to focus on the hope we have through the birth of Christ regardless of circumstances.


If you haven't seen Miracle on Christmas, which was nominated for a Movieguide Awards Epiphany Prize, Barnes & Noble is still offering delivery of the DVD before Christmas for orders placed by Monday, December 20th, and you can do so via this link to their website. If you're not a DVD fan or simply cannot wait that long to watch, stream it right away on Amazon Prime Video and Tubi TV; that latter service is free and does not even require you to sign up - just click the link and you're off to the races!


We hope you enjoy our movie. In the meantime, we here at Christian Film Blog wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
