Product Description

After police officer Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God … and everyone else. Can Mac and his new patrol partner, Sgt. Sam Wright, somehow join forces to help one another when it’s impossible to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one? Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal wounds by extending and receiving God’s grace. Offer The Grace Card … and never underestimate the power of God’s love. The Grace Card stars Michael Joiner, Michael Higgenbottom and Academy Award Winner, Louis Gossett Jr.

Amazon.com

A Christian film about grace and forgiveness, The Grace Card tackles prejudice, loss, and grief. The death of a child 17 years ago filled Mac's heart with anger and bigotry and crippled his relationship with his wife and youngest son. In his job as a policeman, he's paired up with Sam, a black officer who's also a part-time preacher and whom Mac dislikes intensely. Sam has also just received the promotion Mac thinks he deserved himself. The difficult partnership affects each man and his family in very different and significant ways. Sam struggles with the conflict between his desire as a minister to love and accept everyone, and his intense feelings of anger and even hate toward his fellow officer. That struggle almost turns him away from his calling as a preacher. A crisis on the job threatens to decimate what's left of Mac's family and brings the conflict between Mac and Sam to a climax. Just when the situation looks like it might destroy both men, a few well-chosen words and a seeming coincidence reveal that God has made Sam's and Mac's paths cross for a reason. What's more, their interaction with one another causes both men to experience a personal and spiritual growth that neither could have anticipated. The expressions of bigotry in the film are hard to stomach, the sermonizing may be off-putting to some, and the events are sometimes quite predictable, but the portrayal of a city torn in half by racial prejudice is compelling and the message that forgiveness, rather than justice, offers the best solution is certainly worth considering. --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Reminder February 27, 2011
If you are attracted by high-tech special effects and big Hollywood names, The Grace Card might not be the movie for you, but if you are interested in watching a film that's profound enough to impact your own life, you definitely cannot afford to miss this wonderful film.

The Grace Card is being released this weekend, Feb 25-27 across the nation, and I seriously hope many will find it in their hearts to go watch it. Why, you probably wonder? The reason is simple: Our society is deeply divided and wounded, and The Grace Card offers a different approach to stop the bleeding.

Mac McDonald loses his young son in a tragic accident, and his life spirals down from that moment on. As years pass, his relationship with his family becomes strained, and his bottled-up angry feelings wash into his attitude at work, slowing down his progression in his career as a law enforcement officer.
As a final straw, Mac is forced by his superior to pair up with Sam, an African-American pastor who took the job as a police officer to pay the bills, though his true dream is to create a self-sustaining, full-time ministry.There is little love lost between the two men, and their forced partnership triggers feelings neither of them are happy to face. They accept their shared task out of necessity, but even Sam struggles to understand why their paths intersected.When tragedy strikes, the design becomes suddenly clear, and both men discover that nothing happens by mistake. In a breathtaking turn of events, they both realize that Divine Grace was at work the whole time to bring healing not just in their individual lives but, as a reflection, to the collective of society.

The Grace Card is a fantastic document on forgiveness and a powerful reminder that each of us is but a tile in the tapestry of life. A message most of us desperately need to acknowledge.

Format:DVD
Written by a 14 year old Girl:
My family and I really really enjoyed watching the movie "The Grace Card". It was an incredible movie with great themes and very moving and inspiring messages. My brothers playfully teased my mom and I about our tears after the movie because they had seen us crying during one of several emotional scenes.

The Grace Card: "I promise to pray for you every day, ask your forgiveness, grant you the same, and always be your friend".

Mac is a man who has been drowning in guilt and anger for seventeen years. When his five year old son, Tyler, was killed by a black drug dealer's car, Mac's family fell apart and Mac became a racist police man so that his tragedy would not happen to any one else and he could feel less guilty for destroying his family. His other son, Blake, loves his mom but can't stand the level of perfection his dad expects of him because the standard his father holds him up to is his dead five year old brother. Mac's wife can't get a job because she fell at work and now has a disability. 17 years have gone by since the death of their 5 year old son and their family is falling apart.

Sam is Mac's new police partner and a pastor who is working hard to get enough money so that he can become a full time preacher. Since Sam is black and Mac is a racist, their relationship doesn't start as a friendly one. Sam doesn't understand why God has put Mac into his life, but his wife thinks that God has put Sam into Mac's life. It turns out their both right as tragedy strikes Mac's family once again and finally brings Mac to his knees before God. It is through Sam's friendship and sacrifice that Mac sees God's Grace and is able to share it with another who has hurt him deeply. This story is about Grace, not judgement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Movie February 25, 2011
By Mags
Verified Purchase
This movie addresses racial prejudice, pain of unresolved grief, the effects of hate and unforgiveness and its impact on the person plus all those who come in contact with him. Well acted. I felt inspired by the message and hope to see more movies which are based on fostering individual growth through overcoming prejudice, anger and unforgiveness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie... March 7, 2011
By Mary E
We saw this movie in the theater last week and enjoyed it so much. It is thought provoking, convicting and will be life changing for some who view it. Be sure to take tissues because it is a tear jerker, but in a good way! Don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Grace Card August 27, 2011
Format:DVD
Just this minute finished watching this movie, which I have to admit, when I found out what it was about I hesitated. Why is it that we hesitate on good and accept bad so easily? This movie is about another side; one that promotes love instead of hate; good instead of bad; right instead of wrong. It is a movie that reminds us of another time when "love your neighbor" stood for more than a sign on the wall...it was a way of life. In a world where too little is ever forgiven this movie shows another way. Did I think it was good? I think I am going to carry a Grace Card myself from now on. The world can use a little more love and grace in the world. I suggest you do the same. Enjoy.
