Sol Harkens has it all. A new best seller, a gorgeous model girlfriend, immense success. He’s the Mohammad Ali of outspoken atheist celebrities. But not everything is perfect in Sol Harkens’ life. After losing his son to cancer he dedicated himself to denying God and parlayed his attacks on Christianity into a lucrative business. But Sol is empty inside. His party lifestyle has isolated him from his ex-wife Katy and their two sons. He resents their unrelenting faith and Katy’s prayers for his soul.
When Sol’s self-destructive habits end in a serious car crash, he wakes up to learn he was clinically dead for four minutes. Being dead isn’t what bothers him. It’s the voice. Five simple words that refuse to let him go: “Daddy, let there be light.”
Praise for Let There Be Light
This story has so many twists and turns, it’s a rollercoaster! Joyful, tearful, but ultimately, hopeful…Let there be light, indeed!

In the book version of Let There Be Light, Dan was not as kind to my character as he could have been.
~ KEVIN SORBO–Actor, Director, Author
Dan Gordon has not written your usual faith film novelization. It is funny, hip, heartbreaking, and redemptive, and a thoroughly great and entertaining read.
~ STEVEN PRESSFIELD–Author of The Legend of Bagger Vance
Let There Be Light is a movie with a heart. Moving beyond entertainment to realistic life issues, it brings light to our darkened world through a story that finds wholeness in the midst of our most pressing concerns.
~ JAMES KNAGGS–Retired Commissioner of The Salvation Army
Let There Be Light is a story of eternal hope…how it meets and transforms us in the midst of our most profound pain and suffering. I highly recommend it!
