Ethos Media are continuing with the Damaris Trust approach: examining new film releases as a conversation-starting gateway to truth. Their new downloadable resources for the film Captive are now available from ethosmedia.org/captive.


In March 2005, Ashley Smith made headlines around the globe when she talked her way out of the hands of Brian Nichols, after he took her captive for seven hours in her home. Brian was facing trial for rape at the Fulton County Courthouse in Atlanta, Georgia, but he had overcome his guard and grabbed her gun. He then killed the judge and other court officials before escaping on foot. Through the long dark hours of the night, after Brian had taken Ashley hostage, she read to him excerpts from The Purpose Driven Life and The Bible, which provided a message of hope for two broken people.

This free downloadable PDF Viewer’s Guide, written by Nick and Carol Pollard, tells some of the true story behind the film. Much of this is drawn from the book Unlikely Angel, in which Ashley Smith tells, in her own words, what happened during that fateful night. The Viewer’s Guide also includes quotations from two books that were central to the events of that night: The Purpose Driven Life and The Bible. They hope these will help you in your reflection, whether on your own or in discussion with others.
