|The Passion of the Christ *****|
One of the best evangelistic movies of our times, Mel Gibson's, "The Passion", is wonderfully moving. You will see Christ and his saving work in such a powerful way that you cannot help be changed. You encounter it. This is more than watching a mere movie. You are experiencing a Person, a redemption that is so powerfully portrayed that you will not walk out the same. As C.S. Lewis read Chesterton's The Everlasting Man and went from atheism to theism, so likewise I expect the impact of this film. After five viewings I'm still noticing details and subtle symbolisms and my love for Christ is increased. I now read the Passion narratives with a vision that is indelibly printed with the severity of the stripes that Christ wore for our healing and with the agony of his cross by which we are saved. I am thus more ready for the resounding reality of his resurrection. This film does this. It will make you ready for that resounding reality.
