About the movie:
Releases on DVD March 24, 2015
99 Minutes // Genre: Family, Inspirational // Rating: NR
Having lost his faith many years ago, Detective Bill Broadly is called to investigate the disappearance of the local church’s collection plate. As he questions its various church members, rumors swirl as more congregants learn about the theft. When one unexpected church-goer confesses to stealing the funds, the confession resurrects Broadly’s views on God, and helps him see that through faith and belief there really is rebirth and redemption.
I received a complimentary copy from Dove.org for the purpose of review. The following review is my honest opinion and has in no way been influenced by the company.
Grace of God the title alone is powerful. It leads the viewer to believe the following movie is going to be an incredible story about God's amazing grace. This movie certainly does not disappoint. When $30,000 goes missing from a local church, they hire an atheist private investigator to find the money. Now as a viewer that sent up a red flag to me. Why would a church hire someone who is so against God and anything Christian to do anything for them let alone find stolen money? Seems like a bad idea, right? But then I thought about it, why not? What a great way for God to reach someone who has rejected Him by exposing him to the very thing he needs--plant the seed.
This movie spins a tale that not only entertains but draws the audience in. Before long it'll have you trying to figure out who took the money and why. It will have you despises some characters while feeling sorry for others. The cliffhanger of the whole movie will cause you to rewind the movie and go back to make sure you saw right. The thief is NOT who you think it is. The most amazing thing is the message behind the whole movie ~ God's amazing grace. We are all sinners, but when we confess our sins to God and ask for forgiveness, God will forgive us each and every time no matter what it is that we've done. So awesome! This movie will have you thinking and stirring up some things within yourself and have you talking to God. It is amazing what God can reveal to you through a movie.
The actors and actresses did an amazing job portraying their roles. They were so believable which makes you realize this could happen anywhere. It made me wonder if my own church would handle things in a similar way.
I definitely recommend watching this movie with your family and discussing it afterwards. This would also make a great movie to show at a church function. So powerful. I give this movie 5 stars out of a total of 5 stars.

Sarah Anne had agreed wholeheartedly with this arrangement. Will Alexander have a change of heart? What of the dangerous man from her past?
