Great as a belief stretching exercise
26 April 2003 | by (Dunedin New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This movie brings out all the basic issues to do with faith and evidence for faith. I liked the way it cultivated the values of small town America. The movie is well acted on the most part and helps people see what trust is all about. It is an illustration of what faith in Jesus Christ is all about, despite criticism and opposition.
