“Only the Word of God could move people to tears without ever uttering a sound,” says Minister Sheri Brooks, director of GloryReelz Christian Film Festival. “The Good Book is a remarkable film that engages and edifies. Astoundingly unique, incredibly moving!”

“Most people don’t have a clue what to expect,”  says writer/director Sharon Wilharm. “They think it’s going to be like the old silent films with melodramatic action and title screens. They’re pleasantly surprised to discover it’s more of an hour long music video. Perhaps the comment we hear the most from audiences has been, ‘I didn’t know what to expect, but it far exceeded my expectations.’”

Michelle Danko of Faith Filled Family magazine says, “The film was unlike ANY movie I have ever seen. It was amazing! I would give this movie a perfect score, ten out of ten.”

Starring Jenn Gotzon, Evan Fielding, Apolonia Davalos, BK Bomar, Amanda Pentecost, Rebecca Lines, and Josh Childs, The Good Book tells the story of a small Bible that is passed along to fourteen strangers, impacting the lives of seven of those individuals. It’s told without dialogue, using only dramatic action and a dynamic soundtrack. The movie concludes with testimonies from a Bible smuggler and a convicted murderer whose lives were impacted by a Bible.

The Good Book also screened at International Christian Film Festival, Poconos Mountains Film Festival, Bedias, Texas, Christian Film Festival, Faith and Family Films, Christian Film Festival – Indianapolis, Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival, Louisville’s International Festival of Film, and the I Will Tell NdinadZawapanga International Film Festival.

The Good Book is the fifth feature film for Mainstreet Productions. Their last movie, Flowers for Fannie, is currently available in Christian stores as well as iTunes, Google Play, Christian Cinema and other online retailers. The Good Book is being distributed by Bridgestone Media Group and will be released nationwide in January 2015.
