DVD Review and Giveaway: Ring the Bell

"Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above 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."

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.

MY REVIEW:
I love Casting Crowns so I was excited to get the opportunity to review this DVD :). Ring the Bell is about a big city sports agent Rob Decker whose life is all about signing clients and making money. While on a mission to sign a high school baseball star, his car problem forces him to spend some time in Middletown, a small town where life is simple and people are friendly. He is surprised and excited to discover another outstanding baseball talent, "Scooter." Danny Cooke (aka "Scooter") and his sister, Daisy, run a ranch for orphan boys. At this ranch, there's a tradition: when someone makes a decision...a commitment to follow Jesus, he rings the bell to let everyone know. Others then rush to celebrate with him.

Ring the Bell shows a journey that leads to Rob's transformation. The Gospel message is clearly presented and repeatedly proclaimed in this film. It's about sharing the love of Jesus, prayer, hope, and priorities in life. It's an enjoyable faith-filled movie. Mark Hall did a fantastic job and he was the only one with no script! I also really liked Pastor Steve (played by Steven Curtis Chapman); he wrote his own script.

My favorite artist if I had to choose would be Michael W. Smith. I've enjoyed hearing his sincere and humble heart for the Lord these past almost 30 years!

I tried posting a comment just a moment ago, but I think I failed. So, I'm trying again.

I don't have Twitter, but I "liked" your Facebook Page.
