Editorial Reviews

Starring Patty Duke (The Miracle Worker), Sean Astin (Rudy, Forever Strong), and Erin Bethea (Fireproof), Amazing Love follows four teens who embark on a weekend camping trip with their youth group leader, Stuart (Astin), and his wife (Bethea). When an outsider, Ashley, unexpectedly joins Steve, Carrie, Cooper, and Gameboy, the materialistic and self-involved young woman's bad attitude leads to a confrontation with Carrie. Hoping to heal the rift, Stuart shares the story of the Old Testament prophet Hosea. Now, it's up to the teens to decide if this powerful example of faith and commitment inspires them to open their hearts.

Amazing Love, Directed by Kevin Downes, is a great movie for families and youth groups. It is a sharp reminder of the danger of cliques. The scenery is incredible and the scenes (flashbacks) to Israel and Hosea are spot on. I plan to show this to our church youth group.

Ashley, Carrie, Cooper, Steve and Gameboy are all going on a youth group camping trip with their youth pastor, Stuart and his wife Beth. The kids are all pretty tight as many youth group kids are with the exception of Ashley. Ashley is a beautiful girl who has a bit of a self-centered attitude. She is going on the trip because her grandma is pushing her to go. Her attitude is to just get through it. This annoys Carrie to bits. She doesn't appreciate Ashley's snobbishness and has her own preconceived notions about the new addition. Steve however thinks that Ashley is just misunderstood and needs a chance. Of course with a big chip on her shoulder, Ashley doesn't make it easy for anyone to give her that chance. She feels no one understands her or what she has gone through.

Things don't go terribly well with the kids and Stuart decides to share the story of Hosea and Gomer with the kids. The story of Hosea is a story of God's love for His stiff necked, rebellious and disloyal people.

Amazing Love is two stories in one. The main one really is the telling of Hosea and Gomer. The secondary, story involving the kids really unfolds first. That part is good, but the real heart and soul that is going to get you is Hosea. What is cool though is how in the end, it all really intertwines so well together. Hosea learned how God felt when Israel turned their backs on Him and worshiped false idols. He felt it on the level of being a man married to and in love with a woman who was completely unfaithful to him. There was a line in the story that really hit home for me where Hosea is talking with God in anguished prayer not understanding how God would love this unlovable people who did not act loving toward Him. He said "You love us because your love is not dependent on us.

The director used an interesting approach - showing an expanded story of Hosea and Gomer, which is not supported or denied by scripture, as a story being told by a youth group leader trying to demonstrate unconditional love toward a young lady who is struggling to fit in anywhere, especially at a campground with a bunch of church kids. At times the switchbacks are reminiscent of The Princess Bride as the youth group members interrupt the story being related to them to offer personal opinions about the unfaithful wife and her doting husband. The Hosea part of the filming was awesome - the youth group part not so much, but still commendable. This is definitely a film that should be shown in all youth groups. I'd highly recommend that Christian parents of teens add this one to their personal film library.

This movie does a good job of presenting the story of Hosea in a clear and meaningful way. With the modern connections, it helps to make an old story with a contemporary storyline become more real.

Bible readers & believers usually think of being faithful to God but Hosea is a prophetic book about God's faithfulness to His
people. If you have not studied covenants, you will see the OT versions as well as the New covenant in & through Jesus Christ.
God loves His people but time after time in Judges, Samuel, etc, God calls Israel His wife & His son due to their relationship to Him. But many times He has to say, you Stiff-necked people, Hebrews ,..& christians. We can go through the motions of worship, connection & servanthood to our Sovereign Lord but we must be aware of times we are proud, lazy or even deceptive (to ourselves) in our worship of God. This is the Hosea story. I won't elaborate because it's only 14 chapters long. Read it today & see how God
loves His people as Hosea love the harlot. We may like harlot but there is spiritual prostitution &, if applicable, we need to own up to it. Great movie for youth & adults.

I am no movie critique but I do know what I like. This was and is a great family movie with a plot that shows biblical application. From a dumb-ole-country boy perspective I highly recommend this movie for the family.

I loved this movie, it would be a GREAT movie to show to a Youth group at church as I believe this movie teaches not only about Hosea, but it has a GREAT message about acceptance and how we all are going through things at one time or another and how we should not judge others because of their seemingly standoffishness.... (if this is a word).... I was shy as a young teen, and was going through things at home.... had no friends and I could relate to this girl..... thank you Beverly Patton
