Kendrick Brothers’ ‘Show Me the Father’ opens in theaters Sept. 10

The Christian filmmakers behind the hit movies War Room and Courageous will release a theatrical documentary in September that will explore a subject at the core of Scripture: fatherhood. 

The film, Show Me the Father, will open in theaters Sept. 10 and feature inspiring stories about fathers interwoven with biblical truths about the fatherhood of God. Alex and Stephen Kendrick served as executive producers.

The movie includes interviews with Texas pastor Tony Evans, Focus on the Family’s Jim Daly and former NFL coach and player Sherman Smith, among others.

It is the first documentary by the Kendrick Brothers, who also made War Room, Courageous, Fireproof, Overcomer and Facing the Giants. 

Stephen Kendrick called it a “dream project.” He and his brother interviewed multiple people and “compiled about five of the best stories that are tied to the fatherhood of God together,” he said.

“It is an emotional roller coaster. It’s engaging from the opening scene all the way to the end,” Kendrick said. “This is an evangelistic, edifying, theological, emotional journey.”
