Indivisible, reviewed by Jim Linzey

Indivisible (Pure Flix). Actors: Justin Bruening, Sarah Drew, and Jason George. Director: David G. Evans. Producer: Darren Moorman. Screenplay: Cheryl McKay, David G. Evans, Peter White.

Indivisible is about the struggles of a military chaplain, Darren Turner, who served in Iraq and had close encounters with death. With the gradual onset of PTSD through numerous explosions and deaths, separation from fellow soldiers preceded separation from his own family as anger and inner isolation took over his life. Through counselling, prayer, and time, he gradually came to terms with his experiences and re-gained control over his life. He finally reintegrated with his wife and children and was invited to re-enter the Army chaplaincy.

Indivisible has so many applications to daily living that it is being heavily promoted to the Church and Christian families. It has the support of military personnel and the Church. Sony Pictures has recently authorized publication and release of a series of devotionals to tie in with scenes and themes throughout the movie. Indivisible Devotions has daily applications to spiritual growth, ‘Digging Deeper’ questions for personal application, and prayers with each devotional.

I had the privilege of pre-screening Indivisible several months ago, but saw it again on opening night at a local theatre. I also had the privilege of being one of the contributing authors to Indivisible Devotions. Seeing Indivisible again in the theatre was like seeing it for the first time. I personally felt as though I were re-living my own experiences in the chaplaincy. I believe it induces viewers to grapple with their own feelings and struggle in a new light, giving them hope to overcome their own trials.

Indivisible was released Friday, October 26, 2018. Information about the movie and the devotions can be found at the official website: www.indivisiblemovie.com
