Everything can change in an instant...and take a lifetime to unravel. Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer The Grace Card, and never underestimate the power of God's love.

An action-packed drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear. Written by

The shadows on the title sequence are backwards. If the letters in the name "Facing the Giants" were truly back-lit by the lights in the stadium, the shadows would be upside-down, not right-side up. See more »
Grant, we gotta do something about the car. The only thing it does faithfully for us is break down.

It was an awesome movie. I laughed. I cried. I clapped. I cheered. I smiled! At times, I was on the edge of my seat! The message is truly inspirational. Reminds me a lot of "Remember the Titans" but faith-based. The movie stays away from the usual Hollywood hype. It's clean.....no sidetracking on meaningless words, bad language, or other things that detract from the plot or overall movie. They don't shy away from talking about God or praying. It has down-home charm and a feel-good quality. Our family loved it and will go see it again. I recommend it to anyone who wants to be inspired! My kids are already saving to buy it!
