“Eternal Salvation” is a powerful movie and should be on a must-see list. It features excellent acting, dramatic music, and a compelling story line. Jonathan Wright is a bright business executive and has just been promoted to Senior Vice President of business relations. The story opens on his idyllic life, which includes a beautiful wife, Amy, and young daughter, Megan. At the height of his victorious promotion, Jonathan discovers that he still feels a bit empty. Then, a near-tragic event occurs when a brain aneurysm puts him on his back at the golf course and then in the hospital for several months, as he recovers from a coma. He regains his health through rehab and perseverance and agrees to visit his friend Paul’s Bible study group. His life changes dramatically as a result of his conversion to Christianity.
Once a drinker and occasional racist, Jonathan now shares a close relationship with Paul, a black man, and Paul helps him navigate some difficult circumstances in his life. Jonathan’s assistant, Scott, who Jonathan mentored, is now out for Jonathan’s job and is attempting to make him look bad in front of Jonathan’s boss, Mr. Haskell. When the company announces a merger, with looming lay-offs, Jonathan must trust in God’s plan.
