The Voice of God

As the English raided the countryside villages of France in 1425, 13-year-old Joan began hearing voices, voices that demanded she bring peace to war-ravaged France.  By 17, Joan had convinced leaders of France to grant her an army, and she fearlessly mobilized her troops on a quest that stunned the English invaders and brought about the coronation of the Dauphin, the French heir to the throne.  At 19, Joan was convicted of heresy and sentenced to an agonizing death–burning at the stake.

 “We don’t have to accept our challenges; we can say ‘no.’ That’s why when people say ‘yes,’ and step up to the challenge, it becomes an amazing thing,” said Barbara Hall, creator and executive producer of the television series “Joan of Arcadia,” who provides commentary in “JOAN OF ARC:  Child of War, Soldier of God.”

The new special was filmed on location in France and the Czech Republic, and details Joan’s simple upbringing in Domremy, her surrender to the voices she believed came from God, and her struggle to follow her belief in something that no one else could see.  For the first time, viewers can see Joan’s life unfold through her own eyes and based on her own words, and experience the powerful grip of faith that inspired her to lead, according to director Wagner.

“Most of the dramatic depictions of her life have focused on the men who surrounded her and have portrayed her as a victim of male intrigue,” says Wagner.  “In this production, we have worked hard to capture the world as Joan must have experienced it – the doubts, the fears, and the triumph of acting as an instrument of God in re-writing the history of the world in which she lived.”
