Excellent
2 October 2004 | by (Dover, OH) – See all my reviews

This film is a great study of people interaction but it is an even better film with the message of how do we really live our faith. We premiered it to an audience of Jr and Sr High students in a youth ministry setting and they were so overwhelmed they were speechless. That is a pretty hard task and this film was so impactful it took them a moment to really verbalize their impressions and feelings.

I would, and do, highly recommend this film as a great tool for opening up discussion with youth about their faith and the responsibilities of living their beliefs. The fantastic thing about this film is that it also can, and should, be used with adults to open up dialog about the same topics. It crosses many age lines.
