Trivia

The baby in the truck at the beginning was Ken Bevels real son. They were not expecting him to be crying when they opened the door, but it fit perfectly for the scene. In the audio commentary Stephen Kendrick says "there was nobody in the car prompting him to cry, we all were shocked and got chills that day when he opened the truck and the baby cried like that, it was GOD directing that portion of the scene, we were blown away by that".
