About "Faith Under Fire"
Faith Under Fire is a true story of God's presence in the midst of suffering. It is a story of a community’s struggle with betrayal, the shock to their faith, and the death of loved ones after a former schoolteacher opens fire during a church service in the summer of 1980. It is also a tribute to four brave men that raced into the face of gunfire, saving the lives of hundreds of people. Thirty years after that tragic day, survivors share their journey to heal. A pastor, who's small child was killed that day, reveals publicly for the first time his shocking plans to murder the gunman during court proceedings. The anger, rage and guilt he carries for thirty years cost him nearly everything. The assassin's family reveals shocking secrets that pushed him to commit this terrible act. Ultimately, Faith Under Fire is a story of faith and hope leading a community out of the depths of despair to the path of forgiveness and restoration and ultimately peace. Winner of numerous awards.
