Ring The Bell DVD ~ Review & GIVEAWAY

I always raise my hand high to volunteer to review a Christian or Family Themed DVD.  Good entertainment is hard to find!  I was so excited to receive Ring The Bell, the latest Christian DVD to hit the movie world.

My son and I curled up in the living room to watch this movie together and time just flew by from there.  I'm going to cut to the chase!  The story line was interesting, the characters were believable, and the message was beautiful.  I LOVED that the full gospel of Jesus Christ was shared in one scene (the Casting Crowns concert!).  There was no fluff about it.  It was bold, true, and heart felt.

There were scenes that made us laugh, and scenes that made me cry.  I won't spoil it for you, but there was one scene that touched my heart so deeply.  I was reminded of how God's love can transform a life, even the life of the deeply broken hearted.

Here is a little ditty on the story:

Ring The Bell shares the story of a slick, big city sports agent Rob Decker who seems to have it all. But on his latest mission to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob becomes stranded in a small town where the simplicity of life—and the faith of the people—stand in stark contrast to his own fast-paced, win-at-all-costs mindset. Torn between these two worlds, will Rob have the courage to let faith transform his life? This heartwarming story of redemption is sure to entertain and inspire the whole family.
Ring The Bell features a host of well-known Christian music artists, such as Mark Hall along with his band Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West, all who play a role in this inspirational drama. Several former and current Major League Baseball all-stars are also featured in the film: ESPN analysts John Kruk and Rick Sutcliffe (a former Cy Young Award winner), along with Ben Zobrist.
This family-friendly movie was produced by Mark Miller, Beach Street Records' founder and Casting Crowns’ producer. Miller, who is also the lead singer and founder of country music group Sawyer Brown, co-wrote the script with Thomas Weber and Weber directed the production.
