Directed by the Erwin Brothers —Andrew and Jon Erwin— (I Can Only Imagine, I Still Believe), the film looks at how Jesus music rose from America’s 1960s counterculture movement to become a worldwide phenomenon. This fascinating documentary reveals the music’s uplifting and untold story — from its humble beginnings at the Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California through its transformation into the multibillion-dollar industry of Christian Contemporary Music today. With stories of trials and triumphs, the universal power of music from these artists shine through from their messages of passion, sacrifice, and redemption that inspire millions of devoted listeners.
An accompanying book, The Jesus Music: A Visual Story of Redemption as Told by Those Who Lived It written by Marshall Terrill highlights the history of a movement to life. Featuring Contemporary Christian Music artists across five decades, readers will experience the story that has united and changed the lives of people around the world. More details and digital review copies coming soon.
The Jesus Music is written by Jon Erwin and produced by Brandon Gregory and Joshua Walsh and Kingdom Story Company, K-LOVE Films, Southland Studios.
