I highly enjoyed this movie, it was really encouraging with a lovely story line! I loved how it teaches all about Gods love for us, and how there are two sides of the movie - the modern version that relates to us, as well as the original story of Hosea from the bible! It was really encouraging to me, and I came back from it knowing just how amazing Gods love IS for each and every one of us! I would definitely recommend this movie!
Wonderful movie!! I have read the book of Hosea and thought I understood it, but now I understand it so much better! Enjoyed watching a story about teens coming together from different walks of life and coming away friends through Christ. Really good acting and movie making. No bad words is always a blessing. Thank you to all those that made this movie. Keep them coming! We own and Love the Secrets of Jonathan Sperry and Time Changer as well.
This was such an amazing movie! The interactive beginning sponsored by the the youth group camping trip set the stage for the depth of the film that was to come. It began when the youth group leader shared the story of Hosea so the teens would understand that God gives His love to us unconditionally. It is not dependent on whether we return that love! What is important is for us to follow His direction and trust wholly that He is in control and there is a purpose to the hardship he has asked us accept. Each trial is meant to change our lives and draw us closer to Christ. When the story opens in Israel and we begin to experience Hosea's life, his trials, and his unconditional trust and faith in God, no matter how painful or difficult it is to carry out God's requests, we begin to understand why God has placed Hosea in this situation and how it is opening Hosea's heart to a deeper understanding of the God he serves. The story walks us through many emotions and culminates in a scene that shows us how God's unconditional love can change the life of even the most hardened heart. Rich and Dave Christiano have outdone themselves and given us a timeless classic in this film. It has become my favorite and one I cannot wait to share time and time again. Congratulations Christiano Brothers, your faithful service to God in capturing his word and transforming it into a visual production that will reach into the hearts of many people, inspires us to continue to support and promote Christian Film. I look forward to more films from your production company and continue to pray for God to lead your ministry.
This movie shows in a simple way God's love for his people.
I wanted it to be longer; but it was just enough to keep my daughters attention. Unconditional love should be explained in a way that people can grasp; it was clear in this film.
faith, impeccable commitment, and impervious love.
Amazing Love: The Story of Hosea is a beautiful movie.
It's one families, youth groups, churches, and (honestly) anyone who enjoys films with positive themes can enjoy. The cast has such notables as (obviously) Sean Astin, Erin Bethea (Fireproof), a cameo by Patty Duke (do I really need to say more?),with Elijah Alexander as Hosea (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) and Tehmina Sunny (Argo) as Gomer. The film is directed by Kevin Downes (Courageous).
The story is engaging and relevant. The filming is well paced, believable, and true to it's subject matter in both the present and past settings (which was filmed in Israel).
I love this film. It's humorous, entertaining, sweet, and doesn't mince words when it comes to the gospel. Amazing Love: The Story of Hosea presents a stunning visual of God's love for us. What He was willing to do (JESUS) to redeem humanity–even though so many still reject His love.
Buy or rent this movie. Gain permission to screen it at your church as an outreach ministry. Share it with your small group. Allow the film to be a catalyst for discussion. Seriously, you won't regret it.
