A Special Encore EventTuesday, September 13, 7 PM at the Selinsgrove & Bloomsburg Cinema Centers. Discover the amazing stories of faith at work in some of the darkest places on earth. Due to popular demand, Fathom Events and LifeWay Films are excited to bring THE INSANITY OF GOD with DAVID PLATT back to cinemas nationwide for a special one-night encore event. “Missionaries Nik and Ruth Ripken journey into the depths of the persecuted church, asking the question – is Jesus worth it? How does faith survive, let alone flourish in the places of the world that are overcome with the darkness of sin, despair and hopelessness? Nik tells the story of being taught by believers in persecution how to follow Jesus, how to love Jesus, and how to walk with Him day by day even when it doesn’t make sense.”
