Everything can change in an instant ... and take a lifetime to unravel. When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God ... and just about everyone else. Mac's rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he's partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man. Can they somehow join forces to help one another when it's impossible for either of them to look past their differences-especially the most obvious one? Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD ... and never underestimate the power of God's love. Written by David G. Evans

Best "Christian" Film I have seen
1 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen many Christian produced movies in my life and usually come out refreshed emotionally but the film and acting quality always leaves me frustrated. When they had the pre-screening I was reluctant to go because as an avid movie watcher I was afraid that as a church produced movie the quality would not be what I wanted. Boy was I wrong!! The entire movie I was leaning over to my friends going, look at this film quality!! The one thing I didn't like was the wife of Sam had really cheesy acting. But that was my only complaint of the entire movie. It was as if it was produced and filmed by Warner Brothers.

"The Grace Card" refreshed my soul and I could relate. They had topics that were real and happen on a daily basis to many people in our society. And my hopes are that people will understand that although tough things happen in our life, God will be there for us, he never gives us too much to handle, and when at times it feels like our prayers aren't answered that God has a bigger plan and that he is in control.

I saw this film at the Trevecca Nazarene University pre-screening and on February 25th I WILL pay the $10.50 to go see it again. And maybe even again after that.

If you are struggling with anything or just want to be rejuvenated "The Grace Card" is what you need to see!!
