An action-packed drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear.Written by
The "Death Crawl" Exercise was something they came up with themselves that to their knowledge had never been done before. It was very strenuous, not just for the person on the bottom, but also the person on top. Most of it was filmed on a very hot day- 98 degrees. The sweat dripping from Jason McLeod's face at the end was real. He said that he lost about 8-10 pounds that day and was in pain from it. Alex Kendrick and others had to keep going under tents to stay dry. See more »
When David is about to kick the 51 yard field goal in the championship game and his dad stands up, the camera pans back for a wide angle and the dad is the only person in that area. Then in a matter of seconds a man is right next to him asking if he needs help; this same man then magically disappears again and reappears deep within the stands to cheer for the field goal a few seconds later.

Scripture says to honor your parents, and all you do is complain.
All he does is boss me around. He doesn't even try to understand me.
Matt, you can't judge your father by his actions and then judge yourself by your intentions. It doesn't work that way. You're not responsible for him. You're responsible for you. You honor God by honoring your authority.

My husband & I were able to see the movie Facing the Giants in Denver at the CBA conference. I must say this was the Best movie I have seen in years. It gets you right from the start. you go from crying to cheering. The movie is packed full of family values and football. I thought "oh another football movie" I was wrong Facing the Giants is not like any other football movie I have ever seen. I came home totally on fire & excited about this movie coming out in Theaters. I have told all my friends & family about it. I have even told people I didn't even know about it. GO see the movie you wont be disappointed. Unless of course you like me don't have a theater in your area playing the movie. This makes me very sad. The movie is great. I cant say enough good about it with out giving anything away. We came out of the theater encouraged and happy. When is the last time you came out of a movie Encouraged & happy. So excited you wanted everyone you knew to go see it? My prayer now is that a Theatre near me will pick it up. Thank you.
