Had a look at the latest installment to Lisa Chan’s True Beauty series over the weekend. Not of This World, the 3rd film in the series, is itself a thing of beauty. Produced by Flannel, the non-profit behind the NOOMA, Basic, and Ed’s Story films, Not of This World is another great example of a very “fresh look at the teachings of Jesus.” You can read my review of True Beauty: Be Still, the first film in the series, right here.
Just 17 minutes long, Not of This World is an engaging, can’t look away example of story-driven media. With Lisa Chan’s teaching as foundation and backdrop, the film interweaves an intriguing story thread that resolves in the final moments.
A downloadable reflection guide provides the questions and prompts needed for an extended discussion with plenty of personal application.
I think this film (as well as the others in the series) could be used in several ways. While it can certainly be used as a stand-alone study for a small group, it may also be just the thing as a theme-setting piece for a retreat or women’s event.
Looking for something like that? I love this study and I think you will too!
