Storyline

Armed with twenty dollars and a backpack, Pastor William sets off on an unusual call from God to walk across the country preaching the gospel. Provided with a blurry picture of William the media turns his ministry into a human interest story that spans the country in a massive media hunt for this "Miracle Man". After healing a woman of a stroke, William picks up another Pastor who desires to learn the deeper things of God. Together, they team up on an adventure that would take them to some very unexpected places and people. At the same time, William has become the object of wrath by a popular but pompous and pridefilled Christian Radio commentator who brands William as a false prophet and seeks to destroy him.

Recommended Family Movie
24 April 2004 | by (Kosciusko MS) – See all my reviews

The Calling is by far one of the best written movies I have seen in this genre. I recommend this movie to families, church groups and especially those who have gotten lax in their faith. We all go through "down" periods -this movie lifts us up, inspires and renews our faith. Herbert Porter's portrayal of William Jennings is right on target with the theme and message. Shebeta Carter portrays the perfect supporting role as Porter's on-screen wife. David Hudson adds flavor of the younger generation while inserting bits of comedy. Although produced on a small budget, the movie is well made and worth viewing. The only critique I can give is in regard to the budget. With a larger budget, this film would give even Gibson's The Passion some competition. I give this movie 9 out of 10 points.
