Kathie Lee Gifford is combining her love of music and cinema with her strong Christian faith in her latest directorial effort, The Way. A synopsis for the film describes it as "bringing to life Biblical stories with contemporary orchestral arrangements, powerful narration, and touching visuals."

The former longtime host of the Today show's fourth hour has done something along these lines in the past, as Christian Film Blog reported back in 2019, when she teamed up with Christian singer Nicole C. Mullen for a music-video short film entitled The God Who Sees. Mullen is back in this latest production, which runs 80 minutes and features other singers like Jimmie Allen, Larry Gatlin, Danny Gokey and BeBe Winans.


The film strings together music-video-like vignettes tied to the Biblical narrative and encompasses everything from "The dawn of time...to the birth of the baby who would save the world from sin," as Gifford puts it in the trailer, which - like the film - she narrates. The visuals are beautifully shot against stunning backdrops that look like the Holyland, though we have not yet been able to confirm that, and are again reminiscent of Gifford's earlier directorial work with Mullen, which was shot in the Holy Land.


The Way will appear in theaters nationwide for one day only on September 1st. You can get tickets to a theater in your area via this link to the website of Fathom Events, which is distributing the film. In the meantime, the trailer below will give you a feel for what to expect.
