Overview

Do age-old Bible stories still hold relevance today? Does a forgiving God still exist?
In Volume 1, the first of eight installments of The Long Ride, the Mackenzie family, who seem to enjoy an idyllic Christian life on a North Dakota horse ranch, is introduced.
The aftermath of one stormy night changed everything. The incidents of that night will test Luke Mackenzie’s family to the breaking point.
With his personal life in shambles he moves his family to central Florida to start over. One of his sons, though, does not agree and strikes out on his own for the lure of easy money in Las Vegas. Luke and his remaining children continue being faithful to the plan God has for them and they prosper. The Prodigal son’s fortunes are not so good.
Then, a chance meeting with an unlikely angel moves the son to take action. Is this a word directly from God? Is it too late? Will the father really welcome his wayward son home?
And as they did from North Dakota to Florida, the Mackenzie family will again have to make The Long Ride…. but will the son do it alone?
This story is set to become a motion picture later this year. Check out the movie plans at www.thelongridemovie.com and other planned faith-themed movies at www.lazarusfilmworks.com.
