On the Edge Collectors Edition
Dove "Faith-Friendly" - Recommended for ages 12 and over.
This movie makes a statement about the existence of God! A college student named Vince bets his roommate Ross that he can prove God exists. So he invites Ross along on a trip to meet his Christian friends. Ross meets Xalton and Vince and Woody as well as others and they enjoy hiking, camping, and skiing. However, they also run into a few problems including injuries and God proves Himself faithful. Ross finds himself being more open to God than before. The movie does deal with those who struggle in their faith and one young man displays a marijuana cigarette but does not light it and expresses his concern later on that he struggles at times. The idea of obedience as well as God's love is discussed. The gospels are plainly shared as several people state a faith in Christ. There are several breath-taking scenes in the film of mountains and beauty. We are happy to award this movie our Faith Friendly Seal for ages twelve plus. This one could spark a great discussion about God and His love for mankind.
