However, he has had no success finding it and has become very frustrated. One day, by a complete accident, Billy finds this medallion. He and his best friend Allie are not quite sure what it is, though they have a sneaking suspicion that it could be the special medallion Dr. Stone has been looking for all his life. When Billy picks it up and makes a random wish, he and Allie suddenly find themselves transported back in time a full two hundred years.

The Lost Medallion features a very popular Christian actor, director, producer, and writer, Alex Kendrick. He plays the role of Daniel Anderson, who is telling the story of Billy Stone and The Lost Medallion. Before beginning in the Christian film industry, he was the associate pastor at Sherwood Baptist Church, located in Albany, Georgia. However, he felt called by God to expand the Christian movie industry, and began dedicating his life and work to furthering this ministry.
Kendrick read a study and a survey that said that films have become more influential in the modern day world than even churches. This greatly convicted him and he knew that he had to change how the media perceives Christian films. The entire Christian film industry is often regarded as being very cheesy and preachy, so Kendrick set out to change this. He decided that the only way to change how people perceived Christian films was to make some that were powerful and well made. He, along with his brother Stephen, has now written and produced five different films, all feature-length. They have gained great popularity in the Christian world and have even gained secular media attention.
Kendrick also lends his acting talent to other Christian films, such as The Lost Medallion. He believes that it is very important to produce quality films that will be respected, but are still wholesome. All of his films contain Christian values and share some Biblical message. The Kendrick Brothers have had a greater impact than they ever imagined that they could, and their movies have become widely popular. Their most recent release, War Room was long-awaited and gained much attention as it was released. Kendrick devotes himself to each of his films, to ensure that they are the best quality that they can be. He spares nothing and does not hold back, for he knows just how powerful films can be.
Movies like The Lost Medallion are changing the world, one film at a time. Movies impact people and viewers often become extremely caught up in the story and attached to the characters. With appeals to emotions, powerful scenes, and a message of hope, Christian films are becoming a force to be reckoned with. Kendrick has inspired a revolution of sorts in the Christian film industry, and this has slowly begun to change the world for the better.
The Lost Medallion is a very powerful film that contains numerous wholesome themes. For instance, the characters of Billy and Allie teach viewers what it means to work together and to support one another. True friendship is shown, as well as themes of courage and bravery. This film is very entertaining and is filled with adventure and exciting stories. The Lost Medallion is a film that your family will not want to miss.
