Unstoppable with Kirk Cameron
After recently purchasing and watching Kirk Cameron’s Monumental, and because I have dealt with my share of tragedy and suffering, I was excited to receive Unstoppable, in which Kirk tackles the question “Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering?” I respect Kirk and believed he would tackle it in a God-honoring manner. I wanted to see how he handled this tough question.
The DVD is Dove approved for ages 12 and up. My older daughter, who is a very mature 10.5, and I watched the DVD together. (After seeing it, I believe that I was right to wait a few years before allowing my 8.5-year-old watch it.) We both feel like it was very well done, although it was different than I anticipated.
I guess I thought Kirk would offer some “answers” of a sort, trying to comfort and encourage through the platitudes people often offer when someone is suffering. Unfortunately, they’re normally not any more helpful than the words Job’s friends spoke to him in his suffering.
Instead of saying the same things we always hear about how God works everything for good and that God has a plan and a purpose in and through our suffering (He does, but that’s not always immediately helpful to hear), Kirk tells us about a loss that set him on this journey and then shows us his answer to where God is in the midst of tragedy and suffering.
Kirk’s answer is biblical truth, and the presentation is highly visual and is presented in a way that will stay with me for a long time.
This DVD is for anyone (ages 12+) who has ever grappled with hard questions about God’s presence in the midst of our heartache, pain, and agony. I recommend it and will watch it again.
