In a limited theatrical release, "The Fight Within" is set to be an action-packed mashup of faith, fighting and romance.
In the film, Logan Chandler is a rising star in the world of mixed martial arts, but when his father, an MMA champion, dies while training him, Logan leaves the ring unsure of who he is anymore. He finds romance with a young woman of deep faith and seeks to overcome a troubled past and establish a new life. His new faith is tested when a local MMA professional — whose only losing fight was to Logan — forces him back into the cage.
"Faith films tend to draw faith audiences," Jim Davis, executive producer and screenwriter said in a statement given to The Christian Post. "This movie should also engage people with no sense of faith because inner struggle is universal. A cage and a fight are spot-on metaphors to show a young man coming to terms with who he is and what life brings." more >>

James, the lead pastor at Bethany Church in Wyckoff, New Jersey, who has worked on projects to help train underground house churches in China and other countries of the world that are dangerous for Christians, spoke Friday during a breakout session on church mobilization at the International Christian Concern's annual The Bridge conference for the persecuted church.
