Recently as I’ve reflected on the question of Fathers in Christian films, I’ve kept coming back to the Godly example of a Father portrayed in the recently released film Pendragon: Sword of His Father.
Pendragon is a beautifully filmed pre-Medieval story of bravery, courage, war, deceit and love, and at the very heart of the story is a young man who lived a godly life of courage honor and vision because he’d seen it modeled by his father.
The opening scenes of Pendragon set the tone for the entire film. In the interactions between father and son, you see a father who lives up the God-given calling that all fathers have. He imparts vision, challenges his son to a heavenly calling, he gives an example of work ethic and courage, he trains his son to follow and glorify God and makes his love for his son clear.
If you have father who you’d like to honor this June, or if you know a young father who you’d like to inspire, I highly recommend Pendragon as a Father’s Day gift. You can watch the trailer or purchase the film here.
