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

After describing a bit of what's been happening, regarding "the man," the Bishop asks Fr. Tardone, "And this Joshua can do that?" Fr. Tardone had never mentioned Joshua's name. See more »

Fantastic...A 'Must' see
6 March 2004 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I found this film by accident. It is a wonderful find. I've watched it several times already and each time I see something different. It is an almost contemporary life of Christ parallel. You can show it to your kids, no bad language, no nudity, no sex, no violence just a wonderful, wonderful story with some surprises...and a nice twist at the end. Joshua is a very unusual person and a simple woodcarver. You will enjoy watching him and the interaction with the town. Please do watch him and listen to him closely and to the people around him. It is an experience not to be missed.

Do yourself a favor...see it. Watch it with friends and family...
