Product Description

Between Heaven & Hollywood is David’s inspirational journey from the wheat fields of his Mennonite home outside of Dodge City Kansas, to the bright lights of Los Angeles. This story of perseverance will assure you that your dreams aren’t frivolous. They might be the most important part of your life.

White has starred in more than twenty-five movies and produced forty films, including the blockbuster God’s Not Dead. He serves as a Managing Partner of Pure Flix, the largest faith-based movie studio in the world. With his signature wit and sidesplitting hilarity, David’s story of faithfulness, grounded in the biblical truth that no dream is too big for God, will inspire you to relentlessly pursue your dreams, and in the process, bring the reality of God’s kingdom a little closer to the here and now.

God has planted a dream in your heart that is both unique to you and essential to the world. White reminds us that there is no one too common, too uneducated, too poor, too inexperienced, or too broken that he or she cannot be used by God.

Editorial Reviews

Hollywood is the place of dreams---people dream of being famous stars, writers, and directors. One in a million actually breaks through in the industry and makes it. David A.R. White is one in a million. But because he’s done it without abandoning his Christian faith, which is part of his life since his Kansas childhood, he’s one in 10 million! His remarkable story of dreams coming true without surrender to the secular is now captured in his fascinating book, Between Heaven and Hollywood. Funny, earthy, and real---it’s as good as his movies!
As a child I could daydream with great ease, and so many of the things I dreamed were realized with equal ease. But then as a child my trust in God also came so easily . . . then, I had a childlike faith. As time went on, as it undoubtedly will . . . the challenges of life . . . the many stumbling blocks and heartbreaks called into question that faith, demanding all the while that I deepen my relationship with God and strengthen my dependence on Him, if once again, the dreams He placed in my heart were ever again to become a reality. I only wish I had this “gem of a book” to encourage me along my journey and make the path a bit more clear, as I surrendered the dreams in my heart to His purpose for my life. But I have it now. This book not only reawakens our ability to dream, it can reintroduce us to the greatest relationship of our lives. Dreams are but a vision of His Plan for Our Lives.
Reading David’s story, I felt at times I was reading about myself because our stories are similar in many ways. Citizens of Heaven, working in Hollywood. As he points out so eloquently, each of us is a deliberate creation of God, with a God-breathed dream inside us. And each unique, with a wonderful future---if we let Him lead us. I wish every young dreamer would read David’s story; it’s entertaining, sometimes funny, often inspirational, and eventually thrilling. And it’s chock full of God’s Word and will for all of us, but employed in individual and surprising ways. You’ve done big things, David---but this book may well be your best production.
I met David when we worked together on the set of the Pure Flix film Redeemed. This book and how David lives his life are an inspiration to me and many others who feel called to work in the entertainment industry.
David’s story will inspire you to honor God by pursuing the dreams He places in your heart. Between Heaven and Hollywood gives you a roadmap of how to overcome the challenges you will face if you seek to be a witness for Christ in the public arena.
David A.R. White, in his book Between Heaven and Hollywood, has touched the human heart as he strikes a familiar chord with all people who desire to see their dreams fulfilled in their lifetime. In his popular movies God’s Not Dead and God’s Not Dead 2, we see him stand firm and fearless in his faith; being bold in his presentation of God’s infinite character to a world who blatantly denies His existence. As with his work on screen, this book will enthrall the reader to aspire to the heights he has reached. He is a man who has defied the odds and demonstrated his persistence in pursing his dreams according to God’s divine purpose.
David A.R. White is a preacher’s kid from a small town next to nowhere, with God-given dreams that pushed him naively and courageously into the Hollywood abyss. I trust and I have enjoyed working for and with David and was surprised because I thought I knew much of his successful journey into “The Business.” I was pleasantly surprised to read of his trials and tribulations as he has proven to be a significant Hollywood player while armed with his faith and trust in God. Between Heaven and Hollywood is filled with inspiration from a man who grew up on a wheat farm in Kansas without a single connection in Hollywood . . . except perhaps his connection to God. After reading this book I’m reminded of how deep his faith is, and why he was making Christian movies long before it was considered “good business.” He has accomplished a small miracle: honoring the Lord while making successful profitable films of faith in Hollywood. This book is an inspirational guide to following your God-given dreams and reminds us that it’s our unexceptional ordinariness that make us so uniquely extraordinary. Take a chance and read this book . . . it could change the way you see yourself, your faith, and how you go about pursuing your life and dreams.
Between Heaven and Hollywood elucidates the hidden tension within each one of us between the ache to pursue a dream and fear that we will fail. David A.R. White courageously challenges us to dream bigger and trust God more boldly. White masterfully draws us into his very personal struggle of dreaming big, relying on God more severely, and wrestling with fear of failure. Between Heaven and Hollywood inspires us to leave trepidation in the dust and hand our biggest passions to God.

    This book is an easy read that you wont want to put down. if you have a dream or are working on a dream this book provides lots of insite. It is not your typical self help book. it is written like Jesus taughtl with parables. David shares stories going for his dream and then tells how God was invovled along the way. It is very eye opening if you think God doesn't care about your dream.

    I have the privilege of being a part of David's launch team for this book so I was able to read it prior to it's release date. The first word that comes to mind is "WOW". The book is entertaining, motivating, sad, funny, inspirational, helpful and impossible to put down. I stayed up way past my bedtime on a couple of work nights because I didn't want to stop reading. I have wondered for many years why some people have a God-given dream and embark on a journey to fulfill it while I never seemed to have any motivation at all. By the time I finished this book I realized that I do in fact have a God-given dream and it was right in front of me all the time. I just needed to listen to God. So thank you David A. R. White for allowing God to use you to help me. -Ginger Christopher
