“Dryness in the Brook” CFDb Christian Movie Review

DRYNESS IN THE BROOK ~ Journey Back to the Altar

When Steve, a man with a lovely wife and adorable son named precious, decides, out of a burning passion after God, to erect an Altar of fellowship where they can commune with God on a daily basis, life became pleasurable and enjoyable. The declaration and signing of the COVENANT was the seal of their blessing and prosperity in and with God. Life became as fulfilling as it could ever become and their aspirations, goals and destinies were seemingly secured. When lovely and caring Marie came visiting life became even more fulfilling and her caring hand gave Vera the kind of help she never had in her home, though Steve had his reservations. Suddenly like a man under spell or unseen manipulations, Steve became uncomfortable with the Altar room, the COVENANT and the family time with God.

Suddenly Steve, a man with a history of uncompromising integrity and transparency began to hide his lifestyle from Vera. Like a man torn among two worlds but not good at lying, Steve’s actions began to arouse suspicion in the heart of a loving and caring wife who never has the cause to suspect his husband. Worried, bothered and concerned Vera is determined to unveil the unseen and hidden part of her husband lifestyle and to find an answer to why her husband has suddenly lost his passion for the lord and the family fellowship with God.

Things fell completely apart, when one night Steve got home and did the unthinkable! He did not just avoid the family fellowship ritual in the Altar room but ripped and tore the Altar room apart. He denounced the declaration of the COVENANT they had with God and renounce the promise of fellowship they has signed with the God of Heaven. From that point on, all hell broke loose!

Vera is torn between nurturing the home and fighting to discover the worm eating up her once loving husband. Suddenly she wakes up to accidentally discover the secret her husband has been carefully keeping, throwing all caution to the wind, she confronted her husband who lost control and decides to seek the intervention of Pastor Mike, his senior Pastor. While Pastor Mike seeks to restore the once happy home, fighting desperately to pray for healing of wounded hearts and restitutions. What follows is a tale and twist of unbelievable secrets and plots leading to a heart striking tragedy which could only be salvaged and redeemed by just one single journey. A journey which Steve and his wife have to make. A Journey back to the Altar!

How important is it when our hearts speaks to us. How much can our intuition and discernment save us from a moment or lifetime of crisis. Are there ways we can avoid dangers and disaster? What could Steve have done differently? What was the role of Marie in the twist of the story? You need to see the movie to understand and find answers to these questions.

Are you living in dryness even though plugged to the Brook? Come find a new source of freshness as you watch “Dryness in The Brook ~ A Journey back to the ALTAR!”


Watch the Film Trailer


This is a strong, Christian film about the effects of a prayerless life and how important prayer really is!  There are a lot of things I really liked about this film.  It was a guide as to what we should be doing in our lives, and then what happens when we begin to take steps away from doing right…such as prayer!

This family builds an altar in their home and makes a commitment to God.  This, combined with their prayer life is a sort of shield around their family from satanic attacks.  When the altar (or prayer) is neglected one time, this leads to the downfall of the family.  We all should understand that this is what happens with sin in our lives as well.  One small step away from God can lead us away from Him completely until we are at a place where we NEVER thought we would be.  That is because we allowed the Devil a foothold.

One part I really loved and that was when the mom spoke God’s Word over her child’s life before he went to Daycare.  That was pretty powerful!

Another part that I should mention is that we should NEVER ignore those promptings of the Holy Spirit, when we lose our peace about something and even though we can’t explain why, we should NOT ignore it.  God speaks to us for a reason and we need to pay attention when He does.

How many times have we been impressed to do something or NOT do something and then a few hours or days later we say…”I should have listened to that prompting?”  It’s always better to listen!

This is a long movie, but the message is great.  There are little gems throughout this film.  There is one really intense scene right in the middle of the movie.  It is a scene of suspense and they did a great job on it.  There are many things that can be gleaned from this film and that is why CFDb is recommending this film!

 This film comes out on DVD on October 30, 2012
