Storyline

The town of Auburn was always normal, to say the least. True, the people there weren't really a "community", but they never noticed...until a stranger named Joshua rolled into town one morning. In small ways, Joshua began to help out around the town-helping a teen play guitar, helping save a marriage in danger, or teaching a bumbling priest how to speak about faith. An old Baptist church that came down in a storm is his next big project. With the help of stuttering Theo, who dreams of being a preacher, he brings the town together to restore the old building. In this way, the whole town unites and becomes a community. This attracts the attention of Father Tordone, who is a bitter man due to the fact that he lost a position in the Vatican. When the mysterious Joshua begins to show up in two places at once and miraculously cures a blind woman, Father Tordone believes Joshua is a false prophet, trying to cheat people. When his next huge miracle-reviving Theo from death after he falls from... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

The Pope: Who are you?
Joshua: Peter, don't you know me? The world has become such a frightening place. There's so much anger and not enough love. Deep in their hearts of so many people, there is an emptiness that nothing in this world can fill. And that emptiness makes it impossible for them to love.
The Pope: It's so overwhelming. What should I do?
Joshua: Remind them that I love them. That I died for them. Tell them that my love is real. That if they open their hearts to it, I will fill that emptiness and that they will be ...

Awesome movie!
13 August 2003 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This is on the top of the list of my favorite Christian films! It is so amazing to watch Tony Goldwyn in this role compared to his role in "Ghost"!

This is a wonderful movie that the whole family can watch and learn from, whether you are Christian or Non-Christian.

Contrary to some of the comments including the plot line; I never thought that this movie was about Christ's return when I was watching it. But how it might be if Jesus came back secretly to visit and show us how to live an love. Great acting,Tony! 10/10

Just a thought: The Bible says for us to not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
