Kirk Cameron’s Unstoppable

Full of powerful imagery and a heart-felt narrative, Kirk Cameron attempts to answer the question many people ask… “Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?”
In the midst of tragedy many people walk away questioning God. Cameron attempts to tackle this difficult subeject in a 65 minute “visual journal” as he walks with a family through the loss of their son to cancer.
As he explains in the movie, attempting to answer these difficult questions boils down to understanding the sovereignty of God. “It’s like trying to pour the whole ocean into a coffee cup.” At times the imagery used is a bit jarring and slow-moving, but as the message comes together Kirk does a good job of showing us how God never truly leaves us.
