Mary, thanks for your favourite movies. Do you know of other such movies that can be viewed in my family? I am mostly interested in some evangelization movie. regards george


message 43: by Emily (new)

Emily Murphy | 86 comments One that comes to mind is one you might have heard of: "God's Not Dead." It's about a college boy who challenges his professor's atheistic view by giving both religious and scientific arguments for a creator God. There's a lot of side stories that deal with the difficulties of having a Christian faith in today's society. It's a favorite in my family, even if the production value is somewhat subpar. The message is great.

That's so cool! I wanted to go see Pope Francis, but our family couldn't make the meeting due to school commitments :(
