Excellent message - how one person can change how a whole town lives by simply saying "What would Jesus do?" This movie is loosly based on the 1898 novel, "In His Steps: What would Jesus Do?" by Charles Sheldon. The names are the same, but the story takes a modern tone, but the valuable lesson is the same. A drifter, played by John Schneider is shunned by the community even the pastor of a dying church, played by Jim Gleason, tells him "I'm sorry that I can't help you." But the message the drifter brings to a church is "would Jesus act that way?" As church members start changing the way they do things from running their businesses to helping the less fortunate, the wave of love and goodness takes over the town even when a greedy, ruthless politician wants to take over.

This message is vital to the world in this day and age. Imagine what would happen if every Christian would think before acting and ask themselves "what would Jesus do in my place?

I read all the bad reviews after I ordered the DVD, and figured Id made a mistake. But I just watched it and thought it was one of the best Christian movies Ive ever seen. I thought the acting was good, and the script was good, and of course the re-telling of the IN HIS STEPS book/story was great. I plan to recommend this movie to everyone I know, and probably buy several more copies as gifts for friends, relatives, and a church Ive gone to. Obviously you dont need a $50 million budget to make a movie that tells the greatest story ever told; demonstrating "love, understanding, peace, kindness, goodwill" (from the movie), rather than anger, retribution, jealousy, self-centeredness...

If you are smug in your Christian life, or even are not, this movie is for you. How do you maintain your faith when you, a pastor, saw God allow the death of your wife and two children in a horrible car accident? You are a mugger. How do you return to your faith when you observed your mother pray devoutly all her life, and see her life end tragically? (Do you conclude that it did her no good?)

The questions continue for Christians of various occupations. How do you turn away a needy job-seeker? How do you allow salacious material to be printed in your newspaper? How do you accept a lucrative music-making contract when it involves the playing of immoral songs? How do you revive a dying church? How do you prevent a casino from being built where the church stood for over a century? How do you stop a heartless, amoral politician running for mayor in your town.

You must start by believing that with God all things are possible. You also repent. And so on...

"WWJD: What Would Jesus Do" focuses on people from a town that act like they have no faith left. Major life circumstances happen to these people who attend the same congregation and they give up on serving God from their hearts. A homeless man asks for help from the members of the congregation at different times and is rejected in many ways.

The scriptural foundation of this movie film for me was 1 Peter 5, which was mentioned throughout the film. John Schneider played the homeless man/prophetic visitor and did an excellent job. The music by Adam Gregory was very touching to me and gets a very important point across about what Jesus would do in the same situations that the congregation members faced.

This is one film that all Jesus-following congregations should benefit from. It really can make people think about why they would want to be a follower of Jesus at all if they don't want to do what Jesus would do. I believe it would be a great film to watch with congregation members of all ages who have not learned how to treat people the way that Jesus would in different situations such as homelessness, sickness, loss, etc. I believe it would also be a great film for people to watch who already understand how to treat people in these ways but need a refresher and want to learn ways to put what have learned into action.

This is the kind of movie that will never be outdated. It is not a flashy, fleshy, worldly type of movie. It is decent, and honest, a movie inspiring us to follow God through the example of his son Jesus.
There are several different characters in the movie, of many different types of people, following the ambitions of their own soul. This changes when a poor, jobless, homeless man who was badly treated by almost everyone in the town steps upon the platform at the end of a service where the Pastor is telling the church he is leaving and the church will be torn down and rebuilt elsewhere so a casino can be put on it's sight. The poor man tells the people how badly he was treated ,and he couldn't help wonder what Jesus would have done, then falls out cold on the floor of the church.
This so touches the peoples hearts and minds, that it motivates them to act, and fight to keep the church, and live a life that is pleasing to God in helping others, and not just pleasing ourselves.
You can't help but fall in love with all the players.
It is a great family movie teaching all to value the call of God on their lives.
I would recommend it to every one that calls themselves
a Christian. And to those that would like to know about Jesus, and what following him is all about!!!
