40 Christian DVD Movies Worth Seeing

A Listmania! list by Encompassed Runner (Florida, USA)
 
Amazing Grace
1.  Amazing Grace DVD ~ Ioan Gruffudd
The list author says:
  "Top quality historical drama specifically about Wilberforce's tenacious leadership in pursuing abolition of the slave trade. Not boring at any point whatsoever. Interesting supporting characters, including John Newton; inspirational; thought-provoking re:relationship of church and state and living out one's faith. Broad appeal."
$7.98   Used & New from: $0.79
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (614 customer reviews)

The Ultimate Gift
2.  The Ultimate Gift DVD ~ Drew Fuller
The list author says:
  "Entertaining, meaningful, and well-acted all  in one package.  Both humorous and serious.  To collect his inheritance, estranged grandson of the wealthy "Red" must follow the instructions left for him, a "series of gifts" leading to the "ultimate gift." Has Christian themes but is nonevangelistic and would probably be liked by nonChristians as well, except the most hypersensitive."
$6.59   Used & New from: $1.43
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,008 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

Bonhoeffer
3.  Bonhoeffer DVD ~ Eberhard Bethge
The list author says:
  "Documentary on Christian theologian/pastor known for call to active faith.  A pacifist, he nonetheless conspired to assassinate Hitler.  Excellent production, music, interviews with those who knew Bonhoeffer, unique footage. My favorite of the several Bonhoeffer DVDs available."
$20.24   Used & New from: $13.50
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (88 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Indestructible Book
4.  The Indestructible Book DVD ~ W. Kenneth Connolly
The list author says:
  "Scenic on-location filming and passionate narration that conveys excitement of story keep this 4-hr, 4-part history of the English Bible far from being a dry presentation.  Glorifies God's Providence and inspires viewer to new zeal and commitment by recalling lives of those dedicated to perpetuating the Bible (including those long before the Reformation)."
$28.91   Used & New from: $24.71
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

The Radicals
5.  The Radicals DVD ~ Radicals
The list author says:
  "Historical drama of Michael and Margaretha Saettler, two of thousands of Anabaptists martyred...by Protestants! Inspiration for those enduring persecution."
$11.74   Used & New from: $6.11
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

The Gospel of John
6.  The Gospel of John DVD ~ Henry Ian Cusick
The list author says:
  "3-hour, high-quality  word-for-word dramatization of the Gospel of John; helpful for insight and retention, getting a strong grip on this important book."
$9.68   Used & New from: $3.97
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (630 customer reviews)

The Moment After - DVD
7.  The Moment After - DVD DVD ~ David White, Brad Heller Kevin Downes
The list author says:
  "A favorite; though low-budget, this endtimes drama has a multifaceted and suspenseful story, and is evangelistic without being preachy.  Title refers to events and responses within a few months after the rapture. *UPDATE: Moment After 2, just released, is both a prequel (thru flashbacks) and sequel and is not anywhere as good, just o.k."
Used & New from: $2.63

Beyond the Gates of Splendor
8.  Beyond the Gates of Splendor DVD ~ Steve Saint
The list author says:
  "Shockingly moving Christian documentary that's much more than an account of the famous 20th century martyrdom of 5 missionaries to Ecuador.  The power of Christ is on display thru interviews with friends and widows, moving and still photography, and anthropologists discussing the Waodani tribe."
$11.05   Used & New from: $1.63
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (117 customer reviews)

Unlocking the Mystery of Life
9.  Unlocking the Mystery of Life DVD ~ Michael Behe
The list author says:
  "Computer animated science DVD that focuses on the tiny, looking into the cell and its irreducible complexity as support for intelligent design."
$14.99   Used & New from: $3.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (177 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Privileged Planet
10.  The Privileged Planet DVD ~ John Rhys-Davies
The list author says:
  "A complement to the Unlocking the Mystery of Life DVD, rather than the microscopic, this film focuses on the vast, astronomy, and the Earth in particular as being significant and full of purpose, fine-tuned for life."
$15.99   Used & New from: $2.32
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (224 customer reviews)

Sophie Scholl - The Final Days
11.  Sophie Scholl - The Final Days DVD ~ Julia Jentsch
The list author says:
  "Docu-drama primarily about Munich Univ student Sophie Scholl, though also shows the efforts of others, who resisted the Nazis.  Scholl was one of the relatively few Protestants who actively resisted Hitler.  In her case her words were her weapon. She refused to betray her conscience and was beheaded.  Acting flawless. For teens and up."

The Gospel (Special Edition)
12.  The Gospel (Special Edition) DVD ~ Boris Kodjoe
The list author says:
  "So-so story about personal waywardness, church dysfunction, and redemption pulled up to 5-star quality because lots of awesome music sung by megastars. (warning: brief scenes depicting worldly realities like club scene, sensual music, skimpy clothes, fighting.)"
$5.00   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews)

The Second Chance
13.  The Second Chance DVD ~ Michael W. Smith
The list author says:
  "(Warning: PG13) Fish-out-of-water White pastor from cushy suburban megachurch required to "do time" observing and learning at affiliated inner city mostly Black church.  The drama raises issues about politics, human relations, and throwing $$ at societal problems rather than commitment & service."
$5.91   Used & New from: $0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (122 customer reviews)

The Promise Series
14.  The Promise Series DVD ~ Elwood McQuaid
The list author says:
  "God's plan for Israel from a biblical point of view-- from call of Abraham to present to eternity future.  Somewhat dry (especially Part I), but very comprehensive, and perspective is unparalled as it interprets history and current events thru scripture, not speculation.  A production of reputable Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry."
$29.95   Used & New from: $24.95
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Bells of Innocence
15.  Bells of Innocence DVD ~ Mike Norris
The list author says:
  "Very weird spiritual warfare drama that's part buddy film, part zombie-esque western, but ultimately about the spiritual battle for souls.  Scary, best for older teens and up.  (Fair warning: I'm a bigger fan of this movie than others who've seen it, b/c of its treatment of neglected demonic realm reality.)"
Used & New from: $0.01

The League of Grateful Sons
16.  The League of Grateful Sons DVD ~ Maj. William Henderson
The list author says:
  "This documentary is a thank you to WWII vets and everything their generation represented; it largely consists of following a group of relatives and admirers of WWII heroes who journey with surviving vets back to Iwo Jima.  Much about fatherhood, godly manhood, God's providence, passing the torch, and legacy."

Midnight Clear
17.  Midnight Clear DVD ~ Jerry B. Jenkins
The list author says:
  "Not a full-length film, more of a prompter for conversation and thought.  Well-acted, touching story showing how seemingly insignificant words and gestures can have impact, even life-saving impact.  Stephen Baldwin stars."
$8.99   Used & New from: $0.01
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (99 customer reviews)

Joseph (The Bible Collection)
18.  Joseph (The Bible Collection) DVD ~ Sir Ben Kingsley
The list author says:
  "Joseph is by far the overall best and most biblically faithful  of The Bible Collection character dramas, with the possible exception being Jeremiah, since I have not seen that one and can't say."
$9.68   Used & New from: $9.22
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (284 customer reviews)

The Gates of Jerusalem : A History of the Holy City
19.  The Gates of Jerusalem : A History of the Holy City DVD ~ Gates of Jerusalem
The list author says:
  "Whereas some movies about Jerusalem are emotional or political or beautiful, if I had to pick one word to describe this one: informative.  It's got history, archaeology, maps, computer graphics, on location footage, just lots and lots of info integrated and told in a rather unique way--by examining the significance of each of the gates in the walls of Jerusalem's "old city.""
$12.68   Used & New from: $6.98
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (52 customer reviews)

End of the Spear
20.  End of the Spear DVD ~ Louie Leonardo
The list author says:
  "A based on true events drama sharing new developments in the famous story of the Ecuadorean missionaries speared to death by a tribe they sought to evangelize; more about God's dealings with the survivors rather than the missionaries themselves.  Not evangelistic, though perhaps pre-evangelistic, more a testimony of God's care and goodness."
$29.79   Used & New from: $2.41
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (204 customer reviews)

Jerusalem, the Covenant City
21.  Jerusalem, the Covenant City DVD ~ Jerusalem Covenant City
The list author says:
  "Well-produced, on location documentary devoted not to Israel as a whole, but specifically to Jerusalem (past, present, future) from biblical point of view.  Archival and beautiful contemporary footage along with computer animation.  (For understanding peace process, see secular documentary: Relentless, superb!)"
$15.98   Used & New from: $7.63
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Visual Bible - Acts
22.  Visual Bible - Acts DVD ~ Bruce Marchiano
The list author says:
  "Word-for-word quality dramatization of the book of Acts, very helpful for getting a grip on and retaining Acts.  Only quibble, in the scene with the Ethiopian, he is baptized by sprinkling, something neither the specific or general context supports--the opposite actually."
$10.39   Used & New from: $6.39

Billy Graham Presents: The Hiding Place
23.  Billy Graham Presents: The Hiding Place DVD ~ Julie Harris

William Tyndale: His Life, His Legacy
24.  William Tyndale: His Life, His Legacy 
The list author says:
  "Documentary about underappreciated heroic Christian Reformer, martyr, Bible translator, who also should be of more interest to nonChristians for his role in shaping the English language. (Another Tyndale DVD, but a docudrama: "God's Outlaw")"

Behind the Sun
25.  Behind the Sun DVD ~ Robin Armstrong
The list author says:
  "Straightforward drama about individual and underground church persecution as told through following ex-Muslim Samir, now a Christian, as he returns to Middle East to visit and share the gospel.  Viewers familiar with the work of Brother Andrew, Open Doors, Voice of the Martyrs, AWM, etc. will especially appreciate this; or visit Muslims4Jesus on YouTube to get an idea of the persecution."

Robber of the Cruel Streets
26.  Robber of the Cruel Streets DVD ~ Russell Boulter
The list author says:
  "Inspirational documentary about 19th century George Mueller, known for utter dependence on God thru prayer for everything, particularly establishing homes that cared for 120,000+ orphans w/$2.5 million then (or $200mil today), none of which was raised by appeal. Providential appearance of Charles Dickens."

John Wycliffe - The Morning Star
27.  John Wycliffe - The Morning Star 
The list author says:
  "Historical drama on the brilliant and noble scholar and priest, Wycliffe, a Brit, who challenged the Catholic Church long before Luther.  Big on scripture, he had it translated for common man, and without printing press, he spread the message with poor preachers (Lollards), many of whom died for the cause.  Influence crossed borders."
$9.70   Used & New from: $4.48

Facing the Giants
28.  Facing the Giants DVD ~ Alex Kendrick
The list author says:
  "Theater-goers and friends went ga-ga over this happy-ending drama about a  football coach who's sinking like Peter before returning to live by faith in Jesus.  But for me, it was too predictable.  Tip: If you like this story read Tony Dungy's 2007 memoir "Quiet Strength," it's awesome!"
$6.70   Used & New from: $2.28

Hangman's Curse
29.  Hangman's Curse DVD ~ David Keith
The list author says:
  "Suspense horror thriller: a certain high school has repeated cases of kids dying with the name of a past suicide victim being their last words.  A Christian couple and their two teenage kids are hired to go undercover and figure out what's going on.  Requires some suspension of disbelief, entertaining."
$12.93   Used & New from: $0.01

Flywheel (2-Disc Special Edition)
30.  Flywheel (2-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Alex Kendrick
The list author says:
  "Earlier film by the same crew that gave us Facing the Giants.  But instead of illustrating a coach's turnaround, this movie's message is fleshed out thru the life of a car salesman.  The acting is not nearly as believable as Facing the Giants, but the story's not as predictable either.  The last 1/3-1/2 of movie is the best."

Six: The Mark Unleashed
31.  Six: The Mark Unleashed DVD ~ Stephen Baldwin
The list author says:
  "Endtimes drama following men facing death for not yet having chosen to take the required 666 mark upon their hand or forehead.  Simple low-budget reminder that losing one's soul is worse than persecution and physical death."
$19.99   Used & New from: $0.01

Rwanda: Living Forgiveness
32.  Rwanda: Living Forgiveness 
The list author says:
  "(27 min documentary) One million slaughtered in only 3 months! This DVD documents the type of healing only Jesus can bring, showing Christ-based reconciliation of victims & perpetrators. (One brief shot of mutilated bodies with a hacking occuring in distance.) The joyous ending is Kleenex-worthy."

Indonesia: Island Jihad
33.  Indonesia: Island Jihad 
The list author says:
  "Only 20 minutes, but 5 Christian survivor testimonies re: persecution we don't hear much about--become a Muslim or die in Indonesia.  Put out by Voice of Martyrs and explains how their ministry helps."

The Forbidden Book (New 2006 Version)
34.  The Forbidden Book (New 2006 Version) DVD ~ Craig Lampe
The list author says:
  "This is a rather matter-of-fact history of the Bible, not nearly as impressive as the 4-hour DVD The Indestructible Book, but helpful for when a shorter presentation on the topic is desired."
$10.89   Used & New from: $2.83
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

The Gospel Road
35.  The Gospel Road DVD ~ Johnny Cash
The list author says:
  "A somewhat surreal dramatization of the story of Jesus told thru Johnny Cash's narration and a minimal cast that mostly does not speak.  Filmed in Israel, the artistic effects employed emphasize the solitariness of Jesus' ministry and his death for all people of all time."
$10.27   Used & New from: $1.37
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (62 customer reviews)

Here I Stand: Martin Luther
36.  Here I Stand: Martin Luther DVD ~ T.N. Mohan
The list author says:
  "Documentary whose production is straightforward, rather dry, but at least it's a fairer (and more comprehensive) portrayal of Luther than the exciting but deceptive drama called Luther."
$19.99   Used & New from: $13.99
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

John Hus
37.  John Hus DVD ~ Rod Colbin
The list author says:
  "Historical drama, so-so-quality, but on lesser known reformist martyr--century before Luther, following teachings of Wycliffe, Hus of Prague advocated Bible not pope as authoritative in doctrine and that salvation was by faith and not bought, earned, or worked for."
$10.51   Used & New from: $8.30
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

Pilgrim's Progress
38.  Pilgrim's Progress DVD ~ Peter Thomas
The list author says:
  "Best to have read the book first in order to appreciate this allegorical film, since it only touches on parts of it, though it conveys it well, despite the mixed reviews, some of which don't appreciate the movie's artistic  approach.  High theological content.  Too slow for younger children."
$12.98   Used & New from: $3.75
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)

Between the Walls
39.  Between the Walls DVD ~ Patrick Midgley
The list author says:
  "A young man discovers that his late,harsh, professing Christian father left behind a secret room filled w/audio tapes of every conversation had in his house.  This drama's about his facing painful memories and bitterness towards Christianity b/c of them. Not multi-layered, but something most Christians can relate to--deliverance, that includes deliverance from emotional bondages."
Used & New from: $0.99

Invisible Enemies
40.  Invisible Enemies DVD ~ Jason Guess
The list author says:
  "Spiritual warfare drama, only 38 minutes, simple, but reminds without obsessing on invisible reality of spirit realm.  Told thru teen who discovers glasses that allow only him to see this realm.  Not too scary, young teens and up."
