GM’s Christian Movie of the Week: Standing Firm (2010)

Christian Movie

GospelMagnet’s movie choice for this week is the 2010 hit Standing Firm. It is a amazing story of faith and Christian struggles. David, played by Rob Reisman, is a widower, who throws himself into his work for his construction business as a way to remove himself from everything around him.

As he becomes engulfed in financial difficulties, he blames God for his wife’s death, and ends his relationship with the church. The film then focuses on David’s struggle to understand the reasoning behind God’s work, simply wanting to know “Why?”.

The overall message of the film, along with the emphasis on God’s love makes Standing Firm GM’s Christian Movie of the Week. Hope you enjoy it.
