Review by Elizabeth Sherrill; John Sherrill (posted on 16-Apr-2008)

I would say it should have more stars. I watched the film when I was in the 7th grade and it touched my heart. I got saved, meaning I accepted Christ into my heart at a young age. I have the DVD on it and will show it to my youth group and others. It still has the same meaning as it did back then. Because God's Word never fails. Today, I am married to a Pentecostal Minister. I teach Sunday School, Childrens' Church, and lead the Youth Group. I would reccommend the film to others to watch. :)
