Facing The Giants

October 23, 2006 — 4 Comments

From the award-winning producers of FLYWHEEL comes a new, action-packed, family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team … and himself.

In his six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched when the best player on his Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure.

However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith plays out on the field … and off.

With God, all things are possible …

Facing the Giants was an incredible film, a wonderful story of overcoming apathy and putting our faith in God, whether He decides to bless us or not. If you have not taken the time to see it, you need to take the time and support this film — don’t wait. As you sit in the theatre, you will laugh and cry — even if you know nothing about football! I really can’t say how much I enjoyed this film when I viewed it this past weekend. It completely blew me away, and I might daresay changed my life in many ways.

If this film is not in your area, call your local theatre and request it. Here are a few other resources for you to get the word out on this amazing movie.

  3. Cool…I really enjoyed that movie. It was powerful, and just plain VERY good!
    (this is coming from someone who usually watches a movie and shrugs her shoulders with an “eh, it was okay” and a wish she’d spent her time better) :-)

  4. Sounds good Tim. I saw “Remember the Titans” on tv recently – and thought that was good – football movie and great themes.
