"The Good Book" DVD Review and GIVEAWAY! (7/20)

*Disclosure: I received a copy of The Good Book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not compensated in any other way.

About The Good Book (from the website):
The Good Book movie is the first evangelical silent feature to be released since sound was added to movies. It tells the story of a small New Testament that is passed along from individual to individual. These include young and old, rich and poor, blessed and forsaken. For seven of the strangers, it provides hope and meaning when they need it most.
Mainstreet Productions husband and wife team Fred and Sharon Wilharm produced their first faith-based feature in 2000. The Good Book movie is their fifth. Past movies include Class of 91 and Flowers for Fannie. When he's not making movies, Fred is busy producing commercials, web videos, and music videos. Sharon is the editor/ writer for Faith Flix, a blog focused on faith-based filmmaking.

Take a peak at the 30 second trailer:


My Review:
The kids and I watched The Good Book together and I thought they might lose interest since there was no dialogue in the movie, but I think it made it more interesting for them and for me!  I don't think I've watched a silent film since high school and I have to admit there is really something to being able to watch a movie, without words, and still know what is going on.  It's amazing to me that the actors are still able to portray the story without ever speaking.

I also enjoyed the storyline of the film.  It was neat, and even moving at times, to see how one little Bible could effect so many lives.

Buy It!
The Pre-release copy of The Good Book is available now for $15 (free shipping) through the movie's website: http://www.goodbookmovie.com/#!cart/cuox  The Good Book will officially release in stores this fall.
