The Jesus Film
The Albanian Palace of Congresses, in the capital city of Tirana, was once a virtual shrine to atheistic communism. But late last year the featured attraction there was not communist ideology but the Jesus film, a Campus Crusade for Christ evangelistic project.
An estimated 2,000 people turned out for the first Albanian showing of the film in mid-December, including the countrys top government officials. More than 700 indicated decisions for Christ. “What once was a temple of communism is now being used as a temple of the holy God,” exclaimed the head of the government-controlled Albanian film industry.
