Comment from Stan Williams, Ph.D., Filmmaker
I have been privileged to document the faith journey of Alex and Donna Jones since 2000 on videotape. Shortly after my conversion from Evangelicalism to Catholicism in 1997-1998, I had been looking for a "narrative character" to help create a documentary that would get at the truth and clarify the gross historical and contemporary misunderstandings about Catholicism. I was expecting to find a personage from history to "follow" and to write my script around.
But in the summer of 1999, Steve Ray persuaded me to attend a conference in Steubenville, Ohio, to which he had dragged Alex and Donna Jones, early in their journey. It took only a few minutes of talking to Alex in the living room of a boarding house before I realized that my historical character was a contemporary African American preacher who lived and pastored a church only a few miles from my home back in Michigan. It was one of those moments in life I'll never forget.
Over the months that followed, Alex and I met for lunch, and I tried to sell him on trusting me to follow him around with my cameras. Eventually he agreed. We started shooting on March 1, 2000. Tomorrow, August 25, 2006 Alex will speak before nearly 3,000 at a Detroit Catholic Men's Conference, and I once again will put a "wire" on him, and follow him around as he meets people, prays, and preaches... now as a Deacon in the Catholic Church.
Sitting a few feet from my editing system, upon which I am typing this into our website, are nearly 100 hours of footage that slowly have made their way into a number of television and video products, with a couple more on the way. Two of those programs, "No Price Too High" (the video) and "Dinner with Alex Jones" (that I produced for St. Joseph Communications), have sold thousands, and have aired repeatedly on EWTN over the past 3+ years. Thanks to EWTN tens of thousands have heard this fascinating tale. And this DVD, which St. Joseph Communications has graciously allowed me to master as a DVD, includes both of those presentations.
