Storyline

About Twist of Faith Jacob Fisher ('David Julian Hirsh'), an Orthodox Jewish Cantor and amateur songwriter who resides in Brooklyn, New York, witnesses the senseless murder of his wife and three children. Catatonic, Jacob walks out on his Jewish mourning ritual, leaving behind his Jewish garments, wallet and keys. Abandoning his identity, he wanders aimlessly, hoping somehow to understand his tragedy. Fortuitously, he lands in Brent, Alabama (population 2,500), where he is embraced by Nina (Toni Braxton), a single mother and the lead singer of a small gospel choir (an unlikely finalist in the competition to determine the best gospel choir in Alabama), her Uncle Moe (Mykelti Williamson) and their gospel community who help his return to life while music brings Nina and Jacob together as they try to make sense of his past and their possible future.

Twist of Faith - a movie with almost no faith aspects
14 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that you assume will be Christian going into it. It takes place in a Christian environment, but that is about as far as Christ is involved. If you want to watch this movie as one of Christian values, or of faith or of our Saviour - you will probably be disappointed, as I was.

They blaspheme and use other cussings in the movie, and our Saviour is not even mentioned. In fact, they sully any part of the movie that could be good with cheap worldly desires. This movie was as secular as anything else you might see on television.

If you want to watch a glorifying movie, one that is true to our calling and our beliefs as true followers of Christ, then you will certainly be found in confusion in this movie. A Twist of Faith is the same thing as Nestea, they tell you there is a lemon-twist, a twist of lemon - if you will. But when you taste it, you don't really notice that lemon flavour, and when you read the ingredients you find that there is no lemon in there at all, but natural flavours - likely not from lemon at all. The movie was the same, as you watch it and find that Christ has no place in this "Christian" film. This film is without Christ Himself, and is therefore an -ian movie.

Be warned.

-Peter
