Read an Excerpt

Faith in the Spotlight

Chapter One Introduction

The entertainment and media world is more powerful and impactful than ever before. It is literally guiding culture. To have impact, the Bible says, we must be as gentle as doves and wise as serpents (Matthew 10:16). We have done a good job being like doves; now it is time to really get smart. In order to have a positive impact, believers need to master their craft and do it with excellence so they can bring to the table good works that reflect their faith. We were blessed that all our past work on shows like The Voice, The Apprentice, and Touched by an Angel gave us the leverage to produce our passion projects: The Bible series, The Bible movie, and A.D. Now we are blessed to have produced with MGM Studios and Paramount Pictures a reimagining of the epic tale Ben-Hur.

We agree with Megan: we need to be a part of the culture in order to change the culture. We have spoken about this with Megan over the years when she interviewed us about The Bible series and A.D. We know God calls us to be salt and light in this world. It is not always easy, but it can be done. Megan’s book offers a practical, honest look at one person’s experience in the entertainment industry, and her story offers great encouragement for those who want to take that journey, too.
