Product Description

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.

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.

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 is basically two stories in one and shows them intersecting. A small group of youth group kids go camping with their leader and wife and experience some inter-personal conflict. The leader starts to tell the story of Hosea and his wife Gomer from the Bible (with many liberties and assumptions taken). When this occurs, the movie switches to actually show that story unfold. Periodically, it comes back to the kids discussing what they're hearing before jumping back to the story. When it's all done, the impact of the story has an effect on the kids as they discover the depth of God's love for them and how they should extend that love to others. I found the way that this movie was done to be an excellent way to tell the story.

Before watching this movie, I kind of expected it to be a bit "cheesy" and the acting to be poor. I must say that, although at times it seemed to skirt around the "cheese line" a bit, it never actually crossed it, and the acting - while not great - was "doable". This definitely has a "lower budget, t.v. movie" type feel to it.

All things considered, I felt this was a perfectly fine movie for what it was - and I left it feeling encouraged myself in God's love for me. I think this movie could be especially worthwhile to be shown to youth groups - as I actually thought the kids' performances came off reasonably well and I think other youth group kids will be able to relate. Because the Hosea/Gomer story does involve Gomer's unfaithfulness to Hosea, this may not be the best for really young children, but for appropriate ages, I think this could maybe work as a "family night" movie also.
