Letter From God
I went and saw Letters to God tonight. Here is the basic story from Preview Movie Reviews
Eleven-year-old Tyler Doherty (Tanner Maguire) faces his daily battle against cancer with bravery and grace. Unselfishly, Tyler begins writing letters to his Creator, seeking God’s care for those he will leave behind. The letters find their way into the hands of Brady McDaniels (Jeffrey S.S. Johnson), a beleaguered postman standing at a crossroads in his life. At first, he is conflicted as to what he should do with the letters. The decision he ultimately makes becomes a testament to the quiet power of one boy’s unshakeable faith. Inspired by a true story, this is a heartfelt tale of inspiration, hope and redemption.
The movie was great and it brought tears to everyone even four of my 6th grade boys. This is from the guys who did Facing the Giants and Fireproof. The story is great although it seems to drag occasionally. The quality is good and the acting isn’t mainstream movie quality but no where close to the bad acting in Facing the Giants.
I loved the movie. It had a great message, tugged at your heart, had a realistic to life feel, and was enjoyable. I took our kids and I would encourage you to take yours and promote it to your church. I would also say you may want to think about how to promote this at your church when it comes out on video and not get “left behind” as other promote it.
