The businessman best known for the reality program Duck Dynasty says he allowed the darkest moments of his life to be depicted in a new movie so that unchurched people would come to Christ.
The early life of Phil and Kay Robertson is re-told in the new movie The Blind (PG-13), which opens Sept. 28 and follows the couple’s blossoming romance and subsequent challenges due to his anger and alcoholism. The movie even shows Phil booting Kay and the children from their small home. It stars Aron von Andrian and Amelia Eve in the lead roles. His life changed when he became a Christian -- on the big screen and in real life.
Phil Robertson told Christian Headlines he “never doubted” the idea of a movie, even though it depicts some of the darkest moments of his life.
The matriarch of the Duck Dynasty business empire says she hopes the upcoming film about her family will encourage couples to “fight for” their marriage when all hope seems lost, just as she did when her husband Phil kicked her and the children out of the home when they were younger.
The business patriarch who rose to stardom in Duck Dynasty says he regularly baptizes men and women who learned of Christ through his popular Bible-themed podcast and that the crowds he attracts are the result of the Gospel's power.
