The Grace Card DVD {Review & Giveaway}


One reason we got rid of our television several years ago was because there is so little wholesome material on TV these days. That’s why we are always excited to discover movies that we can feel good about watching.
This month we were given the opportunity to review one such movie:  The Grace Card.
From the back of the DVD case:
After police officer Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, years of bitterness and pain erode his love for family and leave him angry with God…and everyone else. Can Mac and his new patrol partner, Sgt. Sam Wright, somehow join forces to help one another when it’s impossible to look past their differences – especially the most obvious one?
Without giving away too much of the story line, I really enjoyed this DVD. It started a little bit slow and somewhat choppy for me. However, by the middle of the movie I was completely drawn into the drama, waiting to see what would happen. I was not disappointed.
While the acting is not the very best Hollywood has to offer (although even big Hollywood names can leave a lot to be desired) the actors were very convincing in the roles. The Grace Card highlighted the power of grace and forgiveness. It also reminded me that love is a choice, not a feeling.
The Grace Card is rated PG-13, because it deals with some difficult subject matter and situations. I think that children under 13 could watch this movie but I would recommend that you watch it first to decide if you think it would be appropriate for your child. 
Buy It: The Grace Card is available in Christian bookstores, DVD stores, and on Amazon.

Win It: We have one copy of The Grace Card to give to a reader!

This would be a great family movie to add to our collection. It is so hard to find solid movies to show our children as they grow older. We truly try to keep out the junk! Thank you! hseide@gmail.com

I would like to win this as my husband is a police officer too. We would be very interested to watch this and see how the tragic loss affects him and his family, and his job.

Hi Allyson! This is a movie that we've been wanting to see ever since it came out in the theaters! We missed it at the cheap theater and now it is on a "very long wait" for our Network subscription. We would love to win this movie because I think it's amazing that there is a movie out there that shows that our lives are gritty and rough and not always pretty, but that our God is always good! It's not through anything good that we do, but through His grace that we are saved! Hallelujah to that message in a movie!

I just saw this advertised in our Family Bookstore catalog. I want to see it because there are so few movies with a positive message out right now.
