Bishop T.D. Jakes Brings “Faith Under Fire” To Life
It shook the world but now it’s coming back to life to celebrate the story again.
Bishop T.D. Jakes, Sony Pictures Television, and Lifetime Movies present “Faith Under Fire” based on the book “Prepared for a Purpose: An Inspiring True Story of Faith, Courage and Compassion in Crisis”
Reliving the brave story of Antoinette Tuff, a struggling single mom from Georgia who heroically averted a tragedy, saving hundreds of lives when she convinced a deranged gunman who stormed an elementary school to surrender is coming to the big screen this week.
Lifetime movies will replay what happened on August 20, 2013, shortly after Antoinette arrived to work at the Discovery Learning Academy in Georgia. The school’s bookkeeper was in the front office when Michael Hill, a young man with a history of mental illness, snuck in, armed with an AK-47 and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. As the school went on lockdown, Antoinette was left alone with Michael, who repeatedly threatened to kill everyone. Showing enormous courage and empathy, along with nerves of steel, Antoinette convinced Michael to surrender by using her own life struggles to connect with him. Antoinette’s faith in God guided her through the toughest moments of her life, ultimately preparing her for that fateful day.
