Christian Life

Even More Christian Movies We (and YOU!) Love

Back in October, we posted five of our favorite Christian films of all time. Then, due to the outpouring of comments and votes for other movies, we followed up with a second list later in the month. That list also garnered a huge response, so we thought we’d continue along with five more movies, nominated by YOU! We love reading your comments and suggestions.

Movies have a unique way of transporting us to another world while teaching us about our own reality and allowing us to take in lessons in a fun and positive way. We hope your favorite movie made the list this time, but if not, be sure to tell us about it in the comments so we can all share and enjoy. Maybe it will show up in a future post!


Suggested by desiboo101. The official site says: “When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erode his love for his family and leave him angry with God…and just about everyone else. Mac’s rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he’s partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man. Mac’s home life is as frightening as anything he encounters on the streets of Memphis. Money is tight and emotions run high as he constantly argues with his wife and his surviving son, Blake, who is hanging with the wrong crowd and in danger of flunking out of school. Sam Wright also never expected to be a police officer. He has a calling—to be a minister like his Grandpa George. But leading a small, start-up church doesn’t always put enough food on the table for a young family, so Sam doubles as a police officer. With his new promotion to Sergeant, Sam starts questioning if his real calling might actually be police work rather than the pastorate. Can Mac and Sam somehow join forces to help one another when it’s impossible for either of them to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one?”


Suggested by desiboo101 and SarahD17. The YouTube description reads: “Frank Rautenbach leads a strong cast as Angus Buchan, a Zambian farmer of Scottish heritage, who leaves his farm in the midst of political unrest and travels south with his family to start a better life in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. With nothing more than a caravan on a patch of land and help from his Zulu foreman, Simeon Bhengu, the Buchan family struggles to settle in a new country. Faced with ever-mounting challenges, hardships and personal turmoil, Angus quickly spirals down into a life consumed by anger, fear and destruction. Based on the inspiring true story of Angus Buchan’s autobiographical book, Faith Like Potatoes was adapted for the big screen by award-winning actor and director Regardt van der Bergh, and weaves together the moving journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows his faith, unseen until the harvest. This inspiring true story of a rugged South African farmer, Angus Buchan, is set in the turbulent hills of the KZN Midlands. Angus’ manic quest for material success is slowly transformed into a wild love for God and people as he wrestles with faith, hope, natural disasters and tragic personal loss.”


Suggested by desiboo101Marcy and SarahD17. The official site says: “Jay Austin wants to sell used cars in the worst way…and that’s exactly how he does business at his dealership. Promising much more than he can ever deliver, he’ll do whatever it takes to sell a car. His manipulative ways permeate all of his relationships—even his wife and son know they can’t trust him. But as Jay works on restoring a classic convertible, he begins to see that God is working on restoring him as well. Coming face-to-face with the reality of how he truly conducts himself, Jay Austin begins the ride of his life as he commits to honoring God with his business, his relationships, and his life!”


Suggested by olburrows and emily.kate. The YouTube description says the film is “the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through the love of her family, her sheer determination and unwavering faith.”


Suggested by Busygirl996VanieMusicianForChristdesiboo101MissMorland and KMT33. The YouTube description says: “In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife, Brooke, face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage.”

    I recommend ” Beware of Christians” its on Netflix. It addresses problems that us Christians and even non believers can relate too. It definitely gaveme a new perspective.

    My favorite Christian movie is October Baby. I love it because it’s about love and friendship and forgiveness. It’s sad at times, but it’s so beautiful.

    To be honest I’m not a huge fan of Christian movies… They’re usually extremely cheesy and boring and just not well written all around… But Soul Surfer is a great one, I totally agree with that being on the list!

    Everyone a wonderful Christian holiday movie that makes you laugh and cry is The Heart Of Christmas. It’s about a little boy who is sick and doesn’t have much time to live, so the town has a early Christmas for him. It’s a true story if you want more info google the title or The Lockes Family! A must see 🙂
