When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God and just about everyone else. His rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he is partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.
Mac's home life is as frightening as anything he encounters on the streets of Memphis. Money is tight and emotions run high as he constantly argues with his wife and his surviving son Blake, who is hanging with the wrong crowd and in danger of flunking out of school. Sam Wright never expected to be a police officer. He has a calling to be a minister like his Grandpa George. But leading a small, start-up church does not always put enough food on the table for a young family, so Sam doubles as a police officer. With his new promotion to Sergeant, Sam starts questioning if his real calling might actually be police work rather than the pastorate.
Can Mac and Sam somehow join forces to help one another when it seems impossible for either of them to look past their differences, especially the most obvious one?
Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer The Grace Card, and never underestimate the power of God's love.
Stars Louis Gossett, Jr, Michael Higgenbottom and Michael Joiner.

I saw this movie tonight on cable. I missed the first 15 minutes of it. The movie was so powerful. I was crying at the end of the movie. It is about God's grace and forgiveness. I am planning on buying this movie this weekend.

- Tremendous Thought provoking movie on forgiveness and healin the past by Saved Forever on 5/12/12
Similar story line to "Courageous" with a twist. It was well done with a very unexpected ending. God is so generous to give us His Grace.
- personal opinion by BeBe on 3/11/12
This is a great movie! It is a little harsh to some but hits close to home in many families. This is a great lesson of forgiveness. It is similar to Courageous. The acting isn't the best but very touching.
- The Power of Grace! by Cheryl on 2/12/12
This movie was great! We saw it in the theatre with another couple. My friend's husband looked at her when she cried during one scene. At the end of the movie, everyone in the theatre was crying, including him. A very powerful message that should be seen by all.
