CFDb Review!

An enjoyable, Christian film, well worth watching! A couple of really great songs in the soundtrack as well!

Film Synopsis:

When the game divided them, faith brought them together.

This inspiring retelling of the Prodigal Son parable stars Drew Waters (NBC’s Friday Night Lights) as Joe Conahey, a high school basketball coach whose Christian faith is tested by a season of discontent.

Joe hits rock bottom when his adopted son Josh, the team’s talented but self-centered star, transfers to a big-city school, betraying his teammates and family. Only through the power of prayer and forgiveness can the troubled Josh make his way back into the arms of his loving father and find redemption.

    What song was Aunt Julie listening to in Breaking The Press when decorating the Christmas tree?

    We haven’t seen this one yet but on the back of the DVD cover it says “Music available on Curb Records, Including “Jesus, Take My Hand” Performed by Jamie Slocum. I hope this helps. We will be watching this film shortly so we’ll pay attention to that scene and see if we can find out exactly which one you are referring to.

    The song is “Baby King” by Barry Taylor but I can’t find any links to where you can purchase this song. It was quite catchy!

    I just watched it on TBN now! and loved every moment of it! especially the part where you can take anything to God in prayer and He loves us even when we are unfaithful. What a Savior!
