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 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.
