Really unique and encouraging video......
16 September 2011 | by files-161-200478See all my reviews

One of the people who commented on this page really knocked the movie. Don't be persuaded by that review. This person clearly has an ax to grind somewhere and has a problem more with "Jesus" himself rather than the movie. My wife and I enjoyed the film so much, that we ordered a few additional copies and my parents did also after watching it. We are going to give them to others whom we know need the encouragement. Trust me, you will be encouraged and challenged. Our young daughter loved the movie also. Our family is on a "journey" right now as my mother was diagnosed with cancer back a year ago. Life has a completely new perspective to us and understanding the true love of Jesus for us in this "fractured world" is one of the biggest keys to finding hope, faith, trust and joy in the midst of the battles that we are each facing.

I encourage you to watch this movie. I honestly expect that you will not be disappointed at all in this movie. I really believe it will touch your heart in a very special way.

I feel a little bit bad for the person who rated this film with only 1 star and really knocked this movie. We can't be mad at him, but we need to understand that it is up to us as Christians to represent Jesus well, not be hypocrites, stand for the truth, and above all love people with the type of Love that Jesus desires us to share.

Each person is entitled to their thoughts, but you can easily tell when someone is storing hurt and bitterness in their hearts - such as in the review from the person who did not like this movie.

Enjoy. I expect that after you watch this movie, you too will think of those whom you would like to share this with.

-Scott
