The Good Book

Sometimes movies don't have to say anything to get their message across. It might be the right blend of music along with great storytelling to convey a universal message. Such is the case with a new movie set to debut this fall from Mainstreet Productions and Faith Flix Films. The Good Book is unique as it is a 60 minute long DVD that portrays the story of how the Bible impacts the lives of the people it touches without any words or dialog. It is a silent movie that needs no words.

The movie begins with a young boy who is sitting with his family reading the story of Daniel from the Bible. It also happens to be his name as well. Since he wants to stay up and finish the story, his parents insist it's bedtime for both him and his younger sister. But Daniel can't wait for morning and finds a way to get in the last part of the story by candlelight. What he doesn't realize is how this simple actions will lead to a series of events involving the Bible when a disaster strikes the family home that is accidentally cause by Daniel. When he feels guilty for his behavior and runs away, trouble soon follows. Daniel finds sanctuary in a homeless camp and once more God's Word seems to be the root of his problems.

As each person in the movie comes into contact with the Bible, each adds their name to it. Soon the Bible makes it way across the world and into the hands of Bible smugglers. Their purpose is to spread the Word of God but each Bible is carefully wrapped inside shirts to avoid detection. However when the home is discovered and the Bibles are taken and destroyed, the young man, Caleb will pay the ultimate price to seeing the Word of God is spread as far as possible.

I received The Good Book compliments of Mainstreet Productions and Faith Flix Films for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are my own. Each of the people that the Bible touches in this silent film is hurting in their own way but each also finds solace in the words the Bible contains at just the right moment. The film score completely fills the space that words would normally find and it makes for a unique family movie. It shows us that words are not necessary and sometimes it is simple that our actions will speak much louder than words ever could. We may never see how our lives or our words impact others until we get to heaven but God's Word will never return void. I rate this DVD a 4 out of 5 stars and this film has received the approval of the Dove Foundation for family entertainment of 5 doves.

The Good Book is currently making its rounds in the film festival circuit and screening at churches and independent theaters. The DVD will be officially released to stores this fall.
