    I mention the story line and plot a bit, so stop reading this review if you consider that information spoiler info. = = = = = = = The movie wasn't what I expected, It is about Paul's later life in prison and not a biography. Although about Paul's later life, some earlier events in Paul's life are acted out from his memories. I enjoyed the movie, but my wife expected more, so I rated it 4 stars (3 for her, 5 for me). I don't think it was 100% accurate according to the Bible, but I don't think it contradicted the Bible, if that makes sense. Example, certain comments were attributed to people different from the person the Bible attributed them to. One main part of the story is the relationship between Luke (author of Acts) and Paul. Another story line is Christians situation in Rome during the time of Paul's imprisonment. I thought the movie was thought provoking and had a good Christian message.

    Many movies with Christian themes have not been well made. This is not one of those. This movie was very well done. It's about the Apostle Paul's later life in prison and his influence on the Christian community from there. Another major part of the story is the relationship between Paul and his companion and writer of the Book Of Acts Luke. The film is emotionally gripping, and gives us a sense of Paul and Luke as persons. The story is not a recitation of scripture, but is an excellent historical drama,

    For many, Paul and Luke are the revered figures who authored of parts of the New Testament. We may know some of their story and some of the words they passed on, but not really have much sense of them as persons. This film is obviously not Scripture, but making use of the Scriptures it strives to give us some sense of who they were and why their faith in Jesus inspired them to be willing to sacrifice themselves.

    About Paul's influence on early Christians

    The film brings Paul to life and sheds light on the life of the early Christians in Rome. The main characters and supporting cast are well acted and the result is an emotionally gripping film. Some argue Paul is more of a supporting character, but it is more about Paul's influence on the Christian community and others rather than a story about him per se, since he was in prison. Really enjoyed it!

    I will not turn this post into a sermon, but for those of you who believe, you will be enriched. For those of you who do not believe you will understand what it is all about. My humble attempt at words to describe this film is not possible. Instead I say to you all watch and feel. I am so glad movies like this are being made and distributed on a large level. Spread the word.

    I have bought multiple copies to give to others. That's how powerful this movie is. For those who read the Bible - you will never look at the Book of Acts or 2 Timothy the same. I was challenged in a way that made me ask the question: If I were imprisoned 2,000 years ago for my Faith - how would I have acted?

    The movie has some biblical inaccuracies, but that happens in a lot of bible based movies. With that being said, it really reminds people that Paul and Luke were people with emotions. Kind of putting a face and voice to the scriptures. Overall, I enjoyed it.

    Fiction more than Biblical fact.

    The dramatization of Paul's life is not based on a truthful chronology nor theological truths, but is rather a "snipit" or collection of graceful encouragement or guidance by Paul pieced together in a fashion designed by less than accurate Biblical understanding.
