About This Film

The documentary film Dawn in the Darkness addresses the issue of diversity and social justice in the Scriptures by challenging viewers to begin constructing a Biblical paradigm where racial reconciliation and social justice are central to Christian practice and faith. This film reveals how a majority of Evangelical Christian institutions have neglected teaching and practice regarding racial reconciliation, ministry to the poor and social justice.

Featuring interviews with pastors and clips from sermon messages, this film ultimately urges viewers to pursue understanding the Gospel holistically and to build the Kingdom of God “on earth as it is in Heaven.”
