The Grace Card Review & Giveaway

Everything can change in an instant … and take a lifetime to unravel.

When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God … and just about everyone else.

Mac’s rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he’s partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.

Mac’s home life is as frightening as anything he encounters on the streets of Memphis. Money is tight and emotions run high as he constantly argues with his wife and his surviving son Blake, who is hanging with the wrong crowd and in danger of flunking out of school.

Sam Wright also never expected to be a police officer. He has a calling—to be a minister like his Grandpa George. But leading a small, start-up church doesn’t always put enough food on the table for a young family, so Sam doubles as a police officer. With his new promotion to Sergeant, Sam starts questioning if his real calling might actually be police work rather than the pastorate.

Can Mac and Sam somehow join forces to help one another when it’s impossible for either of them to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one?

Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God’s grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD … and never underestimate the power of God’s love.

The Grace Card is a very good, very intense movie. It’s rated PG-13, so I watched it by myself, since we don’t like the kids to watch PG-13 movies unless we preview it first. Our 11 and 12 year olds aren’t quite ready for the intense scenes yet. I will definitely be watching this with my husband and the two teenagers, 15 & 16.

Mac and Sam are very believable characters. It’s not hard to put yourself in Mac’s place. The pain of losing a child to a preventable accident must be horrendous. It’s easy to imagine that any of us would be bitter and take it out on those around us. Then the unbelievable happens. Mac’s other son is involved in an accident. Sam is there to help Mac get past his bitterness and turn to God. Mac learns about grace and how to extend it to others.

I admit it.    I cried.      The Grace Card is very moving.

The Grace Card will help you learn to extend grace to others as well.  There’s a segment on the DVD entitled Starting a Grace Awakening. You’ll learn what The Grace Card is and how to share it with others.

I highly recommend The Grace Card for older teens and adults. This world would be a better place if we all learned to show grace to others. Please watch first before sharing with younger teens and kids to make sure they won’t be scared and overwhelmed with the intense scenes in the movie.

    We have been looking forward to this movie. Last year, we hosted a To Save A Life movie event for teens and families. Its amazing how a well made movie can impact your life and others. If we were to win, we would definitely share with other families (above the ages of course.) Thank you so much for this opportunity!

  2. This seems like a movie you can feel good about spending your time watching. I love movies that make you walk away with something to actually think about.

  5. Sounds like a wonderful movie. I love movies that show people triumphing over tragedy by turning to God. There aren’t enough Christian-themed movies out there.

    With my daughter and I just being born again I really think this is a movie to watch, well maybe not her since you recommend it for older kids. But I know it’ll help me with my spiritual side and strengthen my walk with Jesus and make me stronger. Also we don’t ever have the extra money to buy movies and such so this is a chance to win one. LOL

    Thanks for the chance to win a copy
    God Bless You

  8. I think this would be a great, clean movie to watch! :)

    I love movies that get to me. This movie seems like it would provide a great plot and character development. I think I would really enjoy it!

  10. Would love to see this!!!

  11. Robin Quick says:

    I do like this movie because it teaches many valuable lessons on not judging ppl by the color of their skin. We are all the same on the inside.

  12. Our church hosts a monthly outdoor movie night and this would be a great movie to show.

  13. I have been on a personal journey looking at grace through books and scripture, and I think this movie will compliment my journey nicely!

  14. Kortney Picker says:

    I would love this movie because my husband and I are always looking for new movies to watch that have a good message and are appropriate. The preview looks so good!

  15. Hi!
    I have a friend who lost his son and the events following landed him in prison. It has been amazing to ‘watch’ God’s grace in his life and the blessings for all his hard work to change. I’m also very touched when I see God’s grace in my life or the lives of others. I think it would be an excellent movie for me to see, as I sometimes don’t see where His grace is in my own life or feel it doesn’t apply to me.
    Thanks so much for the chance!

    I’ve been waiting for a long time to see this movie, I love Christian strong movies

  19. This looks like a great movie! I am always looking for good quality films for our family library. My husband wants our home to be the “teen hangout” – that means a well-stocked pantry, a (well-lit) family room with an old couch and a bunch of bean bag chairs, and a good supply of exciting and wholesome movies. I will add this one to my list if I don’t win it here!
