Faith of Our Fathers DVD Review
Faith of Our Fathers is an amazing movie. The first time I saw it, I was invited to a special screening of it in Louisville. It really touched me.
I got to watch it with my boys at home, and so I asked them what their thoughts were.
Jonah says, “I loved the clear presentation of the Gospel.” I had to agree. That was on of the first things I said when I first watched the movie. That is the clearest presentation of the Gospel I had ever heard. It was simple, straight from the Scriptures. You just cannot get anymore clearer than that. Christ loves you, and he died for you.
I asked my son Adam, the same question, He says, “It was good.” He is 15. Not much for words, unless it is about something he wants to talk about.
I really liked how the they would go from the present day sons, to their fathers fighting the war. I think that acting was spot on, The storyline was clear.
Please watch the official trailer!
About the movie:
John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of their fathers. Problem is…their fathers have been dead for 25 years. Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons…whom they’ve never met. In 1969, Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades. They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born. In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC to see their fathers’ names. Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died. Trials and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys. The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam. Ultimately, in parallel stories – 25 years apart – the fathers and sons are bound together forever.
