Dove Review

A young man named Jamie Hopkins likes a young woman named Carol. The problem is that Carol is searching for something more meaningful in her life and winds up at a Billy Graham crusade where she accepts Jesus and this doesn’t set well with Jamie. He belittles her faith and gets tired of her talking about God and the Bible. But he can’t deny he has strong feelings for Carol and he notices a definite change in her.

This film does a good job in showing the difficulties of working through relationships and the changes that God can make in one’s life. It also powerfully illustrates that ultimately we are faced with a decision and that is what we will do about Jesus Christ and the Bible. We are pleased to award our Family Approved Seal for twelve plus to this inspiring film.
