7 Episodes, 7 Letters, 1 New Perspective For the Life of the World is an entertaining film series that explores the deeper meaning of Salvation. Have you ever wondered, What is my Salvation actually FOR? Is it only about personal atonement, about getting to heaven, or something that comes later? Is it just to have a friend in Jesus? In seven 20-minute-ish episodes, explore how Gods purposes are woven into every area of our lives: family, work, art, charity, education, government, recreation and all creation! The Bible calls us Strangers and Pilgrims, living in the now and not yet of Gods Kingdom Come on earth. We are also called to be salt and light, to have a transforming presence among our neighbors. Rediscover the role of the church and how our lives lived on earth matter in Gods plan for the world. Join Evan Koons and his friends Stephen Grabill, Amy Sherman, Anthony Bradley, Makoto Fujimura, John M. Perkins, Tim Royer and Dwight Gibson as they discover a new perspective, the BIGGER picture of what it means to be in the world, not of it. This seven-part film series will help you, your friends, church or organization investigate Gods Economy of All Things OIKONOMIA (a Greek word that has a lot to say about Gods plan for his creation, the world, and us.) EPISODES: 1 - Exile What does it mean to be in exile? 2 - Economy of Love What is the point of family? 3 - Economy of Creative Service Is our labor in the world about survival, or is there more to the daily grind? 4 - Economy of Order How do we seek justice for the oppressed? 5 - Economy of Wisdom Why should we know stuff? 6 - Economy of Wonder Must everything have a practical usefulness, or is there value in being useless? 7 - The Church What is the role of the church in the world? FOR THE LIFE OF THE WORLD IS THE BEST TREATMENT OF FAITH & CULTURE EVER PUT ON A SCREEN. JUST OUTSTANDING. Andy Crouch, Executive Editor, Christianity Today.
