simplicity2 Stars Out Of 5too Hollywood-style in valuesJune 22, 2016simplicityQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2The movie setting and basic story line are strong on the need for lifemto be based on values, and a truly powerful vignette was the man who had been praying for students for years by walking past their lockers and touching them. That was the most powerful moment in the film. It also prompted me to be a litle more open about people who use objects symbolically while they pray. It gave me insight into how someone could be persistent in prayer for years through faith and trust God to bless the students without the human having to be personally involved. I was also inspired because it made prayer a physical activity which involved the mind and body--allowed the man to pray with his whole being. Although the situation is obviously impractical in real life because no school is going to allow people to just walk into a school and do whatever they want, the idea can be expressed in other ways in other venues; and indeed just that one inspiration has helped me find other forms of prayer.
Unfortunately, the story line copies Hollywood. The main characters meet a challenge, perceive a need for change, and then sudenly everything they want happens and they gain earthly glory. It is not a Christian film, in that sense.
After I saw this film, I wondered if there would ever be any independent Christian-produced films that don't cave to Hollywood values, and so I was pleasantly surprised in the recent film "War Room". Yes, the team still does win a prize although first place. I had a feeling watching "War Room" that the producer was not going to cave in, and indeed it was so well-produced that viewers could see that the father and team members were enlivened by the changes they had made in working together so much that they were happy and gracious no matter whethethey placed in the contest.
In watching "Facing the giants" I also wondered about all those persistent believers in Christ who don't miraculously have their fertility problems healed. Yes, some do. Also, some don't. But Christian-produced films that make it to market do tend to be much more from the first group. With so many older children languishing in group facilities because their parents' parental rights have been terminated and there are more of them than foster parents, it seems as if the Body of Jesus the Christ has the opportunity to share the love of God who adopted us.
