Tonight Pam and I watched “The Gospel.” Wow, what a strong Christian message! It’s basically a modern-day retelling of the Prodigal Son story. The DVD’s “Making of” featurette showed that the people who made this film are serious about their faith.
I was deeply moved by “The Gospel.” I grew up hearing that the story of the Prodigal Son is really about the “good” son who stayed home and was loyal to his father. Likewise with this movie. You had the prodigal and the good son, and they were at odds with each other. Each needed a different kind of redemption.
Rent the flick.Leave a comment
