  • 1 stars a religion movie and is not good
  • 1 stars One star
  • 5 stars I read the book some years ago, saw the movie and just re-read the book. It was very motivating and helped me to understand God as a Holy Trinity. The questions we all tend to ask were there. Forgiveness, trust in a all knowing - all loving God and repentance is implied. The beauty of the message is we need to RE-Turn to God as we are, not with a burden checklist of things to do, in order to receive His Mercy & Grace. To know that He is not behind the bad things that happen, but can help us thru them if we trust and have an open/constant relationship with Him. See the movie helped me better understand the Bible and release the great sadness.
  • 5 stars This movie was very powerful and showed the importance and need to have FAITH IN AND TRUST IN GOD ALMIGHTY!
  • 5 stars Awsome!! It touched my soul!!
  • 5 stars Fabulous! Great illustration of how the trinity is separate but still unified in purpose.
  • 1 stars Not a good movie, poor acting and story doesn't mean a thing, Do better.
  • 1 stars Very disappointing.
  • 4 stars It was a good movie about the 5 stages of overcoming grief. The stages were not as clearly defined as in other movies but the message got through. To have the holy trinity take responsibility for the recovery is one way to look at it.
  • 5 stars This was a very inspirational movie and yet it is has received harsh criticism from Christian reviewers that seem to miss the point. I am Christian. The point of this movie is about love, forgiveness, and that life can and does go on past the tragedies of our lives. It seems to me that so many Christians have a need to "pigeon hole" who or what God is, who Christ was/is, what the Holy Spirit is and what Wisdom is. These entities have as many dimensions and meanings as there believers. This movie touched me in the deepest and most profound way. I saw it twice and it left me even more breathless the second time. The effect it had upon me was to bring me to a place of forgiveness in an area of my life that I was not able to. If a movie can do that to one person, well, then it is worth every penny it took to make it. But I have talked to countless many who saw this movie and one of the fruits was that of forgiveness. This movie paralleled the book like most do not. It was very well done and I just might see it a third time. I am not one to see a movie even a second time. Kudos for the producer and director.
