“perhaps the best outreach opportunity in 2,000 years”

“Among the most startling outcomes…is the apparent absence of a direct evangelistic impact by the movie…. Less than one-tenth of one percent of those who saw the film stated that they made a profession of faith or accepted Jesus Christ as their savior in reaction to the film’s content.”

George Barna quoted in

The Passion Reloaded: is the silver screen really an outreach silver bullet?

No movies are not silver bullets. Most people come to Christ through personal relationships, however movies can help the conversation. While very few may have come to Christ specifically due to the movie, the movie may have had an impact that resulted in discussions that may eventually have lead people to Christ. Some plant, some water, God gives the increase.
