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
Grant's house was a hunting lodge that they borrowed for a about a week or two. Nobody had been living there, but some ladies from their church dressed it up to make it look lived in. The much smaller house that David Childers and his dad live in was also a hunting lodge, located only about 20 yards from the other one. The wheelchair ramp was added by a team from the church.

When David is about to kick the 51 yard field goal in the championship game and his dad stands up, the camera pans back for a wide angle and the dad is the only person in that area. Then in a matter of seconds a man is right next to him asking if he needs help; this same man then magically disappears again and reappears deep within the stands to cheer for the field goal a few seconds later.

When a black man loses his hair. He still looks cool. Look at Michael Jordan. Samuel Jackson.

I was invited to preview this movie and took my family with me. Even my youngest son, who is 4, came home reciting the message of the film. If a four year old gets it, I am thrilled to think of how many lives could be changed by going to see it. My children laughed at me because I cried like a baby. It evoked so many different emotions! It has been a long time since a movie has touched me like "Facing the Giants" did. The message was awesome and what was more amazing were the non-paid "servants" that starred in this film. This movie has the ability to make an amazing impact in this world. To God be the glory!!! I have been telling everyone to go see this movie, you will not regret it.
