'Jerusalem Countdown' Highlights Battle Between Israel and Islam on Big Screen

We're counting down to an inevitable conflict between Israel and Islam. That's the premise of a new film that's now showing in theaters around the country. Adapted from the best-selling book by John Hagee, Jerusalem Countdown, the prophecy thriller produced by Pure Flix Entertainment, is getting attention.

The movie follows FBI agent Shane Daughtry (David A.R White), who must find smuggled nuclear weapons in the United States before they are detonated. The only people who can help him are a washed-up arms dealer (Lee Majors), retired agent (Stacy Keach) and by-the-book CIA deputy director played by country music star Randy Travis. The film also stars Christian singer Jaci Velasquez.

Jerusalem Countdown debuted on about 50 screens last weekend in a grass-roots campaign to win more screen time. That's similar strategy the producers of the hit movie Fireproof took. Pure Flix CEO and Managing Partner Russell Wolfe told Christian Retailing that the company is offering churches the opportunity to host a Jerusalem Countdown outreach event, so audiences can "witness prophecy unfolding with what is transpiring in the Middle East."

More than 1 million copies of the English version of Hagee's Jerusalem Countdown have been sold since it came to market in 2006. Charisma House has also sold nearly 40,000 copies of the Spanish version. However, Charisma House says there are no plans currently to cross-promote the book with the movie.
