Another great review from Jamie Rake at The Phantom Tollbooth, this time on the recent Hillsong United movie:

Hillsong: Let Hope Rise

“A vehicle by which to introduce non-Hillsongers (Hillsingers?) to the church’s rampant aberrance” or reasonably riveting viewing? Author Jaime Lee Rake uses this movie release to delve deep into the questionable side of a “worldwide worship” phenomenon and arrives at some incisive conclusions.

Go figure that the first among a litany of prevarications and deceptive impressions given by Hillsong: Let Hope Rise occurs from its first frame.

Before we see any members of Hillsong United, the 12-member (!) band associated with the franchised Australian, ahem, “church” responsible for so much praise & worship sung by evangelical churches nowadays, much less its pastorate, the viewer sees an encouragement to participate along with the movie because it’s intended to be a “cinematic worship experience.”
