I know why I don't see many first run movies - ten bucks, ouch! This movie was good especially considering how it was made - by an amateur church group, with actors volunteering. Kirk Cameron is more attractive when he is playing someone "real" - a man with real problems. It is good to say that because of him finding a relationship with God he could find the love to save his marriage, but it makes you wonder what is the answer for all those Christians who already have Christ but have terrible marital troubles and get divorced?
It makes me think of Beth Moore's study "Breaking Free" and the chapter on filling our lives with things other than God. Christians do that - we find Christ but after that go looking for something to fill our emptiness instead of God. It is because of not looking to God, and not depending on God that marriages get into trouble.
