- Amazing! by Allison on 6/27/13
This was not what I was expecting at all when I went to watch this movie. I had no idea it was a true story until the end. A beautiful representation of someone radically saved and passionate about serving Jesus. A must see!
- Wonderful! by Mary on 6/8/13
This movie touched me and my husband. Both movie lovers, and he is much more picky than I and we both enjoyed it VERY much! Very uplifting and encouraging in our faith.
- Bad movie by hellokitty on 12/2/12
This movie was so boring. And be prepared to see a little boy die pretty violently. I threw it away because it depressed me.
- Excellent movie by Bets on 6/7/12
This is such a great movie, that we recommend it to everyone we talk to. We have watched it several times and it is the most inspiring movie we have seen in quite a while. The price is excellent as well.
- Faith comes in all packages big and small including potato's by Brandy on 5/2/12

- Challenging true story of faith by staymi on 12/2/11
I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but this movie portrays the riveting story of a white South African farmer who struggles to provide for his family. After his conversion, he feels called to share his story with others. The included documentary is fascinating, as is the fact that he still speaks to thousands every year. In some ways he is like South Africa's Billy Graham. I gave a copy of the dvd and his book to my parents, and they both loved it.
