On Christmas day 2014 the movie Unbroken, directed by Angelina Jolie hits the theaters.
Back in 2011 I reported on the book Unbroken (here), written by Laura Hillenbrand, which is the backdrop for the screenplay for the film.
In Germany the film hits theaters on January 15.
Life change is one off the greatest apologetic evidences there is - Zamperini and his PTSD following the brutal treatment in a Japanese POW prison camp, left him looking for resources to handle his sick soul. He turned to pornography and alcohol, leaving his marriage in tatters.
But Ms. Jolie’s movie covered just 33 out of 39 of the book’s chapters — and only mentioned in passing Mr. Zamperini’s pivotal 1949 conversion to Jesus Christ, Mr. Graham said.
Those final chapters are actually the most important part of the book, Mr. Graham said, since they explain how Mr. Zamperini really became “unbroken” — his post-war struggles with revenge, nightmares, alcoholism and a failing marriage were turned around after he gave his life to Jesus Christ at a Billy Graham Crusade revival led by the legendary evangelist.
