Coping with the death of a loved one isn’t easy—coping with the death of two at the same time is much, much harder. Joe Amable-Amo must come to terms with the fact that he’s lost both his son-in-law and granddaughter, and he must support his family, specifically his daughter, Audrey, through the trauma. As a banker, he is responsible for Audrey’s mortgage, and when she loses the ability to pay it, he’s faced with a choice: foreclose on the mortgage like he should, or trust that God will help them. God, however, works in mysterious ways, so when He appears to Joe at work, the whole plot shifts into an entertaining, yet inspiring, story of faith, trust, and unfathomable love.
While Walking with Herb is a great movie, the premise is a bit strange—the idea of God calling someone to win a golf tournament to save his family makes the concept of divine calling almost unbelievable. With that said, it does prove the point that God truly can use anything and do anything for those who have faith in Him.
When it comes to film quality, Walking with Herb is top tier. Even the magical aspects are beautifully illustrated. The movie is entertaining, well made, and easy to follow. The characters are relatable, and the audience will feel connected to the story through them. Walking with Herb ultimately draws the audience in with the story of a broken family leaning on God for support and love through one of the most difficult times of their lives.
Walking with Herb is Dove-approved for All Ages.
The Dove Take:
Walking with Herb illustrates the divine power of God through the healing of a family in the wake of tragedy.
