Review and Givewaway: The Grace Card DVD

The Grace Card releases on DVD on Tuesday, August 16, 2011.  This is an inspirational Christian movie about Mac McDonald.  The movie opens as his small son is killed seventeen years ago.  Determined to keep that from happening to someone else, he becomes a police officer and is once again passed over for a promotion because of his attitude.  He's paired up with Sam, who he doesn't like.  For one reason, he got that promotion Mac wanted and secondly, he's not the "correct" skin color, and also he doesn't like his "preaching" at him.  During the movie Mac's son Blake gets kicked out of school, and as always, bad stuff in our lives is always relative because not long later in the movie, Blake's being expelled from school is the least of their worries. 

This movie focuses on unforgiveness.  It mentions slavery and shows the effects of unforgiveness towards a stranger who killed a child.  Not only for those involved themselves, but for those around them.  It mentions drugs briefly, and I believe this movie would be an excellent starting point for a discussion in families of some tough issues.  It would make a good movie to be shown at church events, as well. 

Everything can change in an instant … and take a lifetime to unravel. When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God … and just about everyone else. Mac’s rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he’s partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force—who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.

Can they somehow join forces to help one another when it’s impossible for either of them to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one? Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God’s grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD … and never underestimate the power of God’s love.

  2. I feel the pain of being caught in 2 worlds. As a Pastor to be, I know where my heart should lie, but my old self wants to come out so often it seems. I struggle with making a difference in the lives of those around me and sometimes feel it is a failing process... Like no matter what you do or say, it just doesn't matter.
