Atheist Tuesday Movie Rec: Soul Surfer

| 30 Comments

I have a challenge for you unbelievers on this day: Go see a movie that is positive, inspiring and might possibly cause you to shed a tear or two. I call it “Rocky with One Arm.

Here’s how Plugged In describes the film: It was 2003 when, at the age of 13, real-life Bethany lost her left arm in a tiger shark attack. Soul Surfer tries to tell the story of her courageous, indefatigable fight to return to competitive-level surfing. It also serves as a testament to the spiritual, emotional and physical restoration she attributes to “God’s healing touch.”

Don’t worry, unbelieving friend, the Christian references are kept to a minimum.

I am curious to see if you will be as touched as I was when you see the movie.

I HAVE JUST ONE WARNING FOR YOU THOUGH…

You may be offended that God’s name is not abused, but honored in this film.

I don’t recommend very many movies, but click here for a suggestion of another great video to rent.
