Would you risk everything you worked for, for your faith?

That is what producers of the new Christian movie "The Wager" want viewers to ask themselves.

Real life Christian actor Candace Cameron-Bure co-stars in the film, which examines the role faith plays during temptation.

Most would remember Bure as the girl who played D.J. Tanner on the 1980s show Full House. She is also sister of actor Kirk Cameron.

"It was so important for me to want to do a Christian film. It's where my faith is," she said, Thursday, on The Today Show. "I have to pick the projects wisely, and things that are just purposeful and meaningful to me."

After Full House, Bure took a sabbatical from acting to take care of her three kids. She has devoted her Web site to helping young believers and to professing her Christian faith,.Growing in God with Candace.

The movie "The Wager" examines some of the trials many Christians face today, from struggles with marriage to tests of faith.

The storyline follows a successful Christian actor, played by Randy Travis, as he wrestles with the temptation he faces within his career.

In the movie, the main character must make tough decisions that could possibly end his acting career. But it could also demonstrate his faith in God.

"The Wager" was originally released by Outreach Cinema, a Christian group that organizes showings of faith-based film at churches nationwide.

Christ-centered distribution company PureFlix Entertainment released the DVD May 13.
