Movie Reviews

We need real, human, heroes
Loretta Pioch | Boston, MA | 05/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was blown away by this video. I was not sure what to expect. Baseball and Faith? I'm not a huge baseball fan (hubby is), but I do know many of these names listed on the video.
I was captivated. The hour flew by, and I was entranced. I loved every minute of this movie. Baseball stars - but you see them as real, struggling, human beings...the same as we all are. It was so easy to resonate with their stories - their ups and downs.
Kids need excellent role models and heroes to look up to. No need to look further than this video.
Adults need excellent reminders that we are all human, that we all fail, and that all that matters is our (struggling) faith in God. A thousand years from now, all that matters is our relationship with God today.

Talk about an excellent gift for Dads for Father's Day; for graduates from college, high school, middle school, ok - any age!"
Never Watch a Baseball Game the Same Way Again

Get goosebumps!

We tend to compartmentalize our lives. We see sports as one thing, our faith as another, family stuff as another, our job as another, school as another and so on.

This video shows the integrity of professional athletes who are striving to live lives of faith as pro baseball players and connect the dots for us and our children. It doesn't pretend to make these men out as saints, but as men who "get it" and see that their sports performance is just one part of the big picture.

And it is well done. Not too heavy-handed or maudlin. Good for family viewing, for schools, for coaches, and even for Sunday School! Awesome."
Champions of Faith Review

"This is a fabulous video! Major figures in baseball describe how their lives are enriched by living their faith. I bought this video to show the boy's youth group at my parish. I recommend it to anyone who wants to help young people (as well as older folks) form a strong faith connection. Champions of faith is a great video that counters the rhetoric that works to eliminate matters of faith from everyday life. This video has my highest recommendation.

"As a mother of two sons who LOVE baseball (and the St. Louis Cardinals!), this Video was very inspiring. Showing our young people that a Hero is someone who walks daily with our Heavenly Father and gives HIM the glory for their accomplishments and talents is SO refreshing! This Video shows our human weakness and sinfulness as well as God's redeeming grace for the forgiveness of our sins and those around us. What a blessing for any and every family! Regardless of age or love of sports, you'll love it!"
