“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” —1 Corinthians 1:18 (NIV)
As teenagers, skateboarding legends Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi helped shape a culture. They reached amazing heights and broke countless records in pursuit of innovation and greatness. They were stars. They were heroes. As they will tell you themselves, they were fools—until they decided to lay their sins at the foot of the cross and never look back.
They traded in the destructive habits of boys to serve Christ as men, using their God-given talents to minister to America’s youth in a way very few can. Armed with hardcore biblical teachings, stirring testimony, and authentic, street-level insight, Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi speak in a language that can’t be faked—and work tirelessly to share a message that can’t be ignored. “Foolishness,” from SkateBible, is a daily devotional. It’s a witness tool. It’s an artfully made skate video featuring some of the biggest names in professional skateboarding—men now living as dedicated servants of the Lord. This new feature length DVD will be released March 5, 2013.
The stated purpose is to empower kids to stand against the pressures they face at school, giving them what they need to be as fearless in their faith as they are at the skate park. Show them you recognize a truth they face every day: In today’s world, a righteous life is the greatest rebellion.
The film is approved by Dove (a 5 Dove rating). They describe it as, “a powerful and compelling DVD which focuses on the difference Christ makes in the lives of several men. In addition the film features these same young Christian men skateboarding as Christian music plays and you will be amazed at the talent they display, making jumps and moves in the most unlikely places. This is a good DVD to show to a youth group.”
