MOVIE NEWS: Chasing Grace


Recently, I had the opportunity to view a new Christian movie called Chasing Grace. Christian movies often get a bad rap because the filming quality, the acting quality, etc. (which is not the case in this film) but I do like to support them because I believe in the heart of the message and that is to glorify Jesus. Movies like Chasing Grace show us a bit about what happens when normal, God-fearing people deal with human emotions and human realities in the face of truly difficult circumstances. Every day we face temptations to walk away from God’s perfect will for our lives and there are very real consequences which this movie explores well.

Overall I felt that the movie moves at a pretty good pace and has some great actors and actresses in it. It also included a bit of a twist I didn’t see coming which is always a welcome surprise.

Read below a bit more about the movie and watch the trailer for yourself!

ABOUT: Chasing Grace


A tragic accident threatens to destroy a pastor’s family and sets into motion a complex betrayal between two brothers, while exposing secrets no one wants to face.

Pastor Jonathan Matheson lives in a world of black and white, yet finds a way to navigate the “grey in-between” to work to his advantage, while facing one of the most tragic moments of his life. Set in small-town America and woven inside a tale of redemption, “Chasing Grace” is a story of how one family takes on the burden of guilt in order to make sense of their loss. While pointing the finger of blame at his brother, Pastor Jonathan also chooses to hide from the truth while trying to escape his own personal demons. “Chasing Grace” is loosely based upon true events and provides a powerful story about the redeeming power of forgiveness.
