:The True Story Behind the Powerful Upcoming Film ALL SAINTS

This nonfiction book will tell the story behind the upcoming film ALL SAINTS. The movie is inspired by the true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risk everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
Michael's first assignment as their new pastor is to close down All Saints, a dilapidated country church with a dozen devoted members and a mortgage well beyond its means. But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen refugees from Burma--former farmers scrambling for a fresh start in America--Michael feels called to an improbable new mission.

Jeopardizing his family's future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do--close the church and sell the property--or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community.
This nonfiction book will tell the true story that inspired the film while also diving deeper into the background of the Karen people, the church, and how a community of believers can coordinate their efforts to help those in need.
