“"I Can Only Imagine"” by the band MercyMe is the best-selling Christian song of all time. While lead singer Bart Millard wrote it in only ten minutes, it was a lifetime in the making. After his mom walks out, Millard (played in the movie by newcomer J. Michael Finley) endures years of abuse at the hands of his bitter father (Dennis Quaid), and uses music to escape. At age 18, Millard witnesses the transformative power of his faith when God begins to change his father’s heart and heal their father-son relationship.

Well, I had heard the platinum selling song "I can only Imagine" and felt it was catchy and was nice to listen to. But I will never hear it the same now that I have seen the movie. Plus all the added bonuses cause I got the DVD/BluRay/Digital download from the Cary store. To those who profess faith in something more than what we can touch or see, then this film will move you. I am not a bible thumper, but I do believe that there is more to my existence then just living. The song and the movie is an inspirational film that moves me to do better and more than I am doing. We never know what life is for, but these fellows with Mercy Me have done much to touch the lives of people through their faith, and if we can be better people for what ever the reason then so be it. This film can do that for many. Add it to your library.
