I purchased this DVD along with several others, so I read the synopsis of many and made my selections rather quickly. After starting to watch this movie, I realized what the subject of the movie was and I was dismayed. I checked the back of the DVD and saw that the word "gay" appears only once in the description buried in the middle of the paragraph. It seems to me that makers of movies and books on this subject hide what they are about, perhaps because they are worried their sales will suffer if they are up front with the subject. I know I would not have bought the DVD if I had known. While we are called to forgive, we are also called to have discernment. The Biblical definition of sin hasn't changed. Movies like this one seem to say that we should accept "politically correct" sins. This seems like a slippery slope to man saying that we do not accept God's definition of sin any longer. I am really disappointed that this was a Dove approved movie.
Excellent movie dealing with a volatile subject in a loving and compassionate way. Many people are touched by this topic having friends or family members who have been impacted by same-sex issues. This movie even helps those who have been estranged from parents/children see that seeking reconciliation is on God's heart. And, to see that offenses can cause us to have a narrow view of events and only one side of the story. Obviously, we need to take the 'log' out of own eye to help our brother with the speck in his.
This movie is so good that I bought a copy for a friend whose son is dealing with same-sex issues. I would recommend it to friends, churches and youth ministries. We need more stories like this one.
What an awesome movie. I truly appreciate the persons who took the time to coin such beautiful rendition of God's love for all and His amazing grace to teach us how to love. I have encouraged all my friends to take some time to watch this movie.
