In 2015, Dr. Kent Brantly and his wife Amber visited the Billy Graham Library for the release of their book, “Called for Life,” following Dr. Brantly’s recovery from Ebola. His story will now be featured in the upcoming film, “Facing Darkness,” produced by Samaritan’s Purse.
Millions of people watched on TV and online as Dr. Kent Brantly slowly stepped out of an ambulance in Atlanta, covered head to toe in a white hazmat suit. Two days earlier, he lay in a bed in Liberia, dying of Ebola.
“Faith is not something that makes you safe,” Brantly says in an upcoming documentary, Facing Darkness. In fact, he says, it was his faith that led him to have compassion on Liberians suffering from a cruel—often fatal—disease, and which ultimately meant watching himself go through the same things his patients experienced.
