GIVEAWAY! - Ring the Bell DVD (Christian Movie)

"Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned below for free in hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

Here's the deal.  I love Christian movies.  I hope you do too.  I think families should have a safe alternative to some of the movies Hollywood produces these days.  Don't get the wrong idea, I love all different kinds of movies.  We have a collection of over 800 DVD/BluRays and acquire more every month.  But over the years I have come to realize that we have not even scratched the surface of the number of movies available . . . because we don't like every movie.  These movies that I review are from a company which promotes products with Christian values.

Ring the Bell is a baseball movie.  I am not a big baseball fan, so some of the baseball references were lost on me.  Casey Bond is an actor and a retired baseball player and is one of the stars of this movie.  Other people you wouldn't expect as actors in this movie are Steven Curtis Chapman and Matthew West, who are contemporary Christian artists.  Casting Crowns, the Christian band plays a large part in this movie not just at their concert but deliver an inspiring message.

I admit some of the acting seems forced  . . . not hard to watch, but forced.  Some parts of the movie also do not flow well and seem to be disconnected until the end when it really all comes together.

This is my honest opinion of the movie.  Of course, I believe that it has a great message.  But the message is great no matter how you hear it.

Jesus Christ can change your life if you let go of the plan you have for it and let Him have control.  Transfer your trust, whatever you are trusting in right now, to the one and only God of the universe and He will save you by His son.  All you have to do is ask for forgiveness.

About Ring the Bell:
Ring The Bell shares the story of a slick, big city sports agent Rob Decker who seems to have it all. But on his latest mission to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob becomes stranded in a small town where the simplicity of life—and the faith of the people—stand in stark contrast to his own fast-paced, win-at-all-costs mindset. Torn between these two worlds, will Rob have the courage to let faith transform his life? This heartwarming story of redemption is sure to entertain and inspire the whole family.
Ring The Bell features a host of well-known Christian music artists, such as Mark Hall along with his band Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West, all who play a role in this inspirational drama. Several former and current Major League Baseball all-stars are also featured in the film: ESPN analysts John Kruk and Rick Sutcliffe (a former Cy Young Award winner), along with Ben Zobrist.
This family-friendly movie was produced by Mark Miller, Beach Street Records' founder and Casting Crowns’ producer. Miller, who is also the lead singer and founder of country music group Sawyer Brown, co-wrote the script with Thomas Weber and Weber directed the production. 

Ring the Bell is available on DVD for only $19.99
