Storyline

Unable to cope with the squabbles of his divorcing parents, fifteen-year-old Matthew Stevenson takes it out on his church. The old and godly widower whose woodcarvings Matthew trashed takes in the kid as a worker to help repair the damage, which also provides Matthew a quiet harbor in which to consider WWJD (What would Jesus do?). That phrase gets back to and influences his parents as well, and the family that was once disintegrating after turned from God mends. Written by statmanjeff

One of the best faith based movies I have ever seen. Not the typical everything is perfect type. I like that. I say B+
2 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"You can either lend a hand or get out of the way, I'm pretty sure I know what choice Jesus would make." When high school dropout Matthew, upset with his parents, vandalizes a church his punishment is to help fix it up. When he is sent to help woodcarver Ernest Otto (Ratzenberger) Matthew begins to learn a valuable lesson. As I have stated many times before my biggest problem with the faith based movies are that everything is too perfect and there is no tension. This movie is one of the few exceptions that I have found. This is also the only movie like this I have seen that actually threw me for a loop at the end. This is a very good movie and very much worth watching even if you don't normally like the faith based movies. Overall, along with "What if" this is one of the best faith based movies I have ever seen. I give it a B+.
