What You Need To Know:

PRODUCED BY FAITH is written by former Sony Pictures executive, DeVon Franklin, who produced HEAVEN IS FOR REAL and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS. His book is a step-by-step manual for becoming a success at one of the major Hollywood studios. It’s even more. It’s about following God and living your Christian faith in a manner that gives you a more abundant life, even in the heart of the entertainment industry. DeVon’s youth suffered from impoverishment and severe parental stress and strains. Thanks to godly grandparents, DeVon became a devout, Spirit-filled Christian and a preacher in his church, but God called him into the entertainment industry. In PRODUCED BY FAITH, he shows how he lived out God’s call without giving up his values.

DeVon started as an intern and worked his way to the top through faith, perseverance, gratitude, loyalty, and extreme drive. DeVon wrote a contract with God and lived that contract. Having written several books on communications, I am more than impressed by the clarity, wisdom and faithfulness of PRODUCED BY FAITH. It’s a book that works brilliantly on several different levels.

(CCC, BBB) Extremely strong Christian, moral worldview; and, nothing objectionable.

More Detail:

Most books about movie production in the entertainment industry are written by outsiders looking in, even though some of those authors may be serious experts. PRODUCED BY FAITH is written by former Sony Pictures executive, DeVon Franklin, who produced HEAVEN IS FOR REAL. DeVon knows and understands every aspect of the industry. Besides HEAVEN IS FOR REAL, he also produced another MOVIEGUIDE® favorite THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS. His book is a step-by-step manual for becoming a success at one of the major Hollywood studios. It is even more than that. It is about following God and living your Christian faith in a manner that gives you a more abundant life, even in the heart of the entertainment industry.

Like many African Americans, DeVon’s youth suffered from bouts of impoverishment and severe parental stress and strains. Thanks to godly grandparents, DeVon became a devout Spirit-filled Christian and a preacher in his church, but God called him into the entertainment industry. In PRODUCED BY FAITH, he shows how he lived out God’s call without giving up his values or his witness. As I have recommended to young hopefuls for many years, DeVon started as an intern and worked his way to the top through faith, perseverance, gratitude, loyalty, and extreme drive. DeVon wrote a contract with God and lived that contract.

Having written several books on communications, I am more than impressed by the clarity, wisdom and faithfulness of PRODUCED BY FAITH. It’s a book that works brilliantly on several different levels.
