WATCH: In New Book, Pastor Greg Laurie Reveals Details of How Hollywood Icon Steve McQueen Came to Christ Before Death

Pastor Greg Laurie to release book and movie on the life and salvation of American icon Steve McQueen, May 2017.

Internationally renowned evangelist Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries is revealing the salvation story of legendary actor Steve McQueen in his newest book, Steve McQueen: The Salvation of an American Icon, which will be followed by a documentary film.

Steve McQueen, which hits shelves June 13, follows the life of the No. 1 movie star of his time. Also known as the “King of Cool, McQueen is now immortalized in pop culture through his hit movies “The Magnificent Seven,” “The Great Escape,” and “Bullitt.”

It was McQueen’s legendary car chases and death-defying stunts that drew many fans, including Pastor Laurie.

“That story was so fascinating to so many because the mystique of Steve McQueen continues to this day,” said Laurie in a statement shared with The Christian Post. “Steve McQueen wasn’t cool because he drove the Bullitt car. The Bullitt car was cool because Steve McQueen drove it.”

“Notwithstanding all his fame and wealth, a colossal vacuum lived rent-free in his heart, a yawning chasm. A lot of people do not know about McQueen’s hardscrabble beginnings. He was born into the home of an alcoholic mother and a father that left him early in life, he found himself on the wrong side of the law more than once. McQueen chased after every pleasure this planet had to offer.”
