Movie Review: Facing the Giants

ftg.jpgWe recently saw Facing the Giants. It is the story the football team from a Christian school and their journey to the state championship. No matter what Coach Grant does his team just can’t when. At the start of his 6th season everything seems to be going wrong. The team isn’t playing like a team. He stumbles upon a meeting of parents and one of his coaches plotting to get rid of him. For more of the plot you will have to see the movie.Facing the Giants was produced by Sherwood Pictures. Sherwood Pictures is a ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, GA. Facing the Giants filmed using volunteers from Sherwood Baptist. It is one of the better Christian movies I have seen. Check out the movie when you get a chance — DH

  2. Dear Sherwood,

    Today, July 5th, our church’s choral group sang a special tribute to our nation’s birthday and to the Christian foundation upon which it rests. The group did a tremendous job. But while our church can be described as “outgoing” I was gravely disappointed that no one showed the enthusiasm for the nation that God has graced us with as they did at other times.

    I write this to you to say that I am very concerned about our nation and what fellow Christians know or don’t appreicate about this nation. I for one am going to lead the charge next year for a celebration at our church that educates and inspires our nation’s birth. But I a afraid that our church, though very fundamental, is not alone. That is why I am writing to you.

    May I please suggest a new project? In looking for a first class film that depicts our founder’s faith I find none except The Patriot, which really focuses on the average citizen’s struggle. Please prayerfully consider a project showing the challenges, faith and sacrifices of 1776. I am just a business man in the corporate world, but I will do what ever I can to support, spread the word and raise money for this project. Our nation desperately needs this.

    I know that what I am asking is a lot, but after all, you’ve faced giants before.

    God’s blessings,

    Kevin Meyer

  3. Kevin,

    Thank you for stopping by. It is a great movie. However, I am not connected with Sherwood Baptist Church.

    Look for the release of their 3rd movie Fireproof soon.

  4. This is regarding Facing the Giants. This is a great movie – made me cry. We also struggled with infertility for 3 1/2 years. That is written in past tense, since our first child is now almost 3 months old! However, my experience was a little different than portrayed in the movie. In the movie, the wife finally says to God, “I will still love you.” Then she finds out she was pregnant all along. I had to get to the point where I could say, “God, I believe you love me even if I don’t feel like you love me because you are withholding children from me.” After I said this, I found out I was already 5 weeks pregnant. You see, I don’t think it is up to us as humans to perfectly love God – we can’t. But it is up to us to choose to believe that He loves us. Just like my little newborn son cannot really love me for several years, but he can trust that I love him and rest in that knowledge.

  5. Thanks for sharing your comments. It is a movie worth viewing. I enjoyed it, (twice), with my girls. I, too, wrote a blog on Facing the Giants where I expressed one concern. You can find it at Link deleted

    • Thanks for stopping by. However it is just a movie, ie a form of entertainment. While spiritual applications can be seen in movies don’t take them too seriously. Also, shortened links are not allowed, used complete links only.
