War Room is my second novelization of a film and I'm excited I was able to work with Stephen and Alex Kendrick.
I heard about the story after filming was complete. On a trip to Chicago I read the script and wept at several parts. (A good sign.) The rough cut of the film came and I watched it over and over and over, trying to get the dialog and setting right, while staying with the heart of the story.
I feel this simple story, this simple message about the power of prayer and the necessity of it, is exactly what we need today. I pray the novel and the film will work hand in hand to call us to do the most powerful thing we can do.
