Honor for our Living God!
12 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a church boy from way back, I can definitely relate to and recommend this movie to anyone! The story of the prodigal Son is woven throughout this film, and the honesty of how we church people really are---struggling with our sins and insecurities as much as anyone yet able to be forgiven and renewed by a Living and Powerful God such as we know! The music is dynamic! The film uplifts God in a relevant and contemporary way!

Plot: David Taylor went from earning $40,000.00 a night as an R & B singer to being drawn by the Spirit back to his Fathers church and the people he knew before he became famous.

His childhood friend, Charles, becomes the Pastor of the church when Davids Father dies. The childhood friends both struggle with human fallibilities until God gets their attention!
