Facing the Giants

Several friends have mentioned that the film, Facing the Giants, relays an outstanding Christian message. It’s currently playing in theatres throughout the country.

From the film’s website:
From the award-winning producers of FLYWHEEL comes a new, action-packed, family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team … and himself.

In his six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched when the best player on his Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure.

However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith plays out on the field … and off.

With God, all things are possible …
My brother and his wife watched the film Friday night, and they enjoyed it so much that my brother took his four kids to see it the next day. They loved it as well. It sounds like it’s an uplifting family film. I can’t wait to see it.
