Trivia:
Grant's old car was one that Stephen Kendrick found and "dressed up" to look really pathetic. It really wasn't working very well and was hard to get around to different locations.See more »

Finally...a movie of value!!, 15 September 2006
Author: embo_1999 from United States

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.
