Well made -- Best Christian Dramatized Documentary
26 August 2019 | by romanstntSee all my reviews

Being a Christian, I'm usually not a fan of Christian movies due to subpar acting and shallow storytelling. However, this dramatized documentary is an exception. Refreshingly gritty, unapologetically faith-filled and at times bloody, it tells the story of those who sacrificed themselves to spread the love of the God whom they worshiped and experienced intimately. They testify of their savior, Jesus, in whom they unwavering trust even in the midst of horrific torture. Now this is faith!
