By the age of 12, Jack Stone had experienced more life grit than most adults. In a depression, he decided to grab the controls, make a list as his road map and set out to accomplish life his way. Fifteen years of life on the street and clawing up from the bottom later, we find Jack as a successful lawyer. He’s done well on his own, crossed a lot off his list and added more. But he hasn’t factored God into the plan. God hasn’t seemed to be around in the past; can Jack trust him with the future? As life continues to take its toll and tragedies strike, will Jack relinquish the power of his list in order to gain all he’s ever wanted?
“The List” should be on anyone’s must-see list! Scott Pryor gives an excellent performance as Jack Stone, a man who felt for years that he didn’t need God until life hits him hard with the death of a loved one and separation from his wife. With parents taken away due to drug dealing when Jack was a boy, Jack and his younger brother Dylan wind up in foster care with a Christian family. Jack feels that Dylan will be better off without him so runs away. Years later and now an adult, Jack has gotten everything he wants based on a “list” he made for himself: he is a successful lawyer, has married a “hot” woman named Molly, and now Molly adds “starting a family” to his list. But his friend Brian tells him he needs God on his list. Jack and Molly have a son named Ethan and, when Jack wins a high-profile case, he seems to have it all. Until tragedy strikes.
Jack’s trials include his wife leaving while his friend Brian continues to witness to him as he always has. In an amazing turn of events, Jack’s younger brother Dylan finds him and talks to him about the Lord. Jack can’t seem to run away from God because he keeps running into Him. God has blessings in store for Jack and Molly, but they have to trust in Him to receive them.
