Unstoppable; Movie review and giveaway

http://unstoppablethemovie.com/
 
Did you ever watch the show Growing Pains?  One of the characters was Mike Seaver, played by Kirk Cameron.  He is now 42 years old and is an evangelical Christian.  He's worked on several Christian films, including the movie Fireproof and Monumental.
The movie Unstoppable, was inspired by the death of Kirk's friend Matthew Sandgren, who was only 15 years old when he died of cancer.  It brought up the question we've all heard before - Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?
He goes to The source - the Bible and starts at the beginning in this documentary, talking about the first sin and where God is in the middle of tragedy.



This movie was released for a one night showing in September and after a record setting attendance, it was shown another night.  In just two nights this independent project sent a loud message – audiences want thought-provoking and meaningful entertainment. We really wanted to go but were unable to go either night.  I was really happy to get this offer to review the DVD, which is being released on January 28. We strongly recommend that you watch it!
I'm also able to give one DVD away to one of my readers. If you'd like to be entered for a chance to win, just leave a comment here and a way for me to contact you if you are chosen.  I'll post the winner on Saturday.
