A beautiful movie
5 November 2004 | by (Tacoma, WA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie about a week before I joined the church, and it has stuck with me as perhaps the best movie for someone looking into the church to see. It tells the true story of a man who, without even knowing the church that the Book of Mormon is from, left his own church because he knew that it was false. It is moving in a way that I can't put into words. True, the movie doesn't have the highest budget, but the acting is head-on and the message delivers a bulls-eye into your soul. It will reach into you and, like the Book of Mormon itself, will testify to you the truth. If you watch this movie and follow the promptings of the Spirit, you will know that the Book of Mormon is truly another testament of Jesus Christ, bearing testimony that He is the Savior and inviting you to accept the gospel.
