In small ways, Joshua began to help out around the town-helping a teen play guitar, helping save a marriage in danger, or teaching a bumbling priest how to speak about faith. An old Baptist church that came down in a storm is his next big project. With the help of stuttering Theo, who dreams of being a preacher, he brings the town together to restore the old building. In this way, the whole town unites and becomes a community. This attracts the attention of Father Tordone, who is a bitter man due to the fact that he lost a position in the Vatican. When the mysterious Joshua begins to show up in two places at once and miraculously cures a blind woman, Father Tordone believes Joshua is a false prophet, trying to cheat people. When his next huge miracle-reviving Theo from death after he falls from... Written by Anonymous

OUTSTANDING, UPLIFTING
13 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

The film "Joshua" was a pure delight.

It was such a refreshing change from the junk that is on the screen today. To see a movie with no swearing or sex was a refreshing change.

I loved the movie as did my husband. It made me cry for joy.

There was a beautiful message to this movie of hope and love.

The first time I had seen it I was at first a bit perplexed as to who Joshua really was. It didn't take long for me to figure it out, and when I did I cried with absolute joy.

What a treasure this movie is and one that I recommend everyone to see.
