Best Christian Movie I've Ever Seen - Great Interactions Depicting Conversation Between a Converted Spouse and an Atheist Spouse
I don't mind saying upfront that I'm biased towards any portrayal of Christianity that isn't cheesy, paranoid, sentimental, etc. The strength of the movie is not its apologetic in my opinion though, in its "Case for Christ." That would be too much to ask of a movie like this - the movie introduces thoughts that are great starting points toward Christian theism. That apologetic part is OK, but very much an introduction. See, I am judging the movie as a Christian. There are answers to the apologetic questions it raises in much more detail than can be done in a movie versus a documentary/educational film - the book is worth having. So to knock the movie, like user Ruthless Goat, as filled with fallacy after fallacy, is just as "ruthlessly" subjective a statement as he wants to accuse the movie/book of being. There are better apologetic books out there than The Case for Christ, but it's still good. The best part of the movie is the dilemma created by his wife's belief and the interaction between the two of them. It felt real. I thought Vogel and Christensen did an excellent job. Except for the ending, Vogel remained very believable throughout. I really enjoyed it. I think this will raise the bar for Christian movies. They should have been doing biography all along I guess.
