We went to the theater today and saw a new Christian movie that was released this weekend called "What If".

It stars Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), Kristy Swanson (Buffy, Vampire Slayer) and John Ratzenburg (Cliff on Cheers).

I thought that it was a well made movie and has a great theme, What if you lived your life based on God's direction, not your own.  He gives Kevin Sorbo's character a chance to see what his life would have been like if he had done that.  It has strong Christian theme spread throughout the move and a great scene showing someone praying to receive salvation.  I would definitely recommend it.

Here is a link to the movie site:  http://www.thewhatifmovie.com/

Oh, cool! I want to see this now. It is important for us to support Christian-based movies so that they will keep getting made.

The man that produced it is Dallas Jenkins, the son of Jerry Jenkins the author.  I didn't realize that when I went and saw the movie.

Have you seen the Book of Eli?  People are saying it's the most blanatly Christian film done in the secular world since the Passion of the Christ.

No, I haven't.  Haven't heard of it either.

Is it based on the book by Bill Myers (I think)?
