DVD Review - Ring the Bell

About the DVD
Ring The Bell shares the story of a slick, big city sports agent Rob Decker who seems to have it all. But on his latest mission to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob becomes stranded in a small town where the simplicity of life—and the faith of the people—stand in stark contrast to his own fast-paced, win-at-all-costs mindset. Torn between these two worlds, will Rob have the courage to let faith transform his life? This heartwarming story of redemption is sure to entertain and inspire the whole family.

Ring The Bell features a host of well-known Christian music artists, such as Mark Hall along with his band Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West, all who play a role in this inspirational drama. Several former and current Major League Baseball all-stars are also featured in the film: ESPN analysts John Kruk and Rick Sutcliffe (a former Cy Young Award winner), along with Ben Zobrist.

This family-friendly movie was produced by Mark Miller, Beach Street Records' founder and Casting Crowns’ producer. Miller, who is also the lead singer and founder of country music group Sawyer Brown, co-wrote the script with Thomas Weber and Weber directed the production.

Ring the Bell is available on DVD for only $19.99

My Take on the DVD
In this heartwarming Christian story , a man who is an aggressive , high power sports agent tries to convince a high school baseball star to forgo attending college and allowing the agent to take him to the major leagues. What Rob Decker does not understand is that the people of Middletown have devoted their lives to following the path that God has shown them. Rob learns that he cannot change the mind of Shawn, the young baseball player.

Rob has always put his career and company ahead of God and family, and it is not until he visits Middletown and the Cook family that he understands that he is missing something very valuable in his life. His visit to Middletown is life changing as Rob finally , through prayer, accepts Jesus in to his heart and rings the bell.

The importance of the bell ringing is that the person ringing the bell is showing others that he has allowed Jesus into his heart and life. As you will see in the movie there is such rejoicing with the decision by the others in the story.

This movie shows the importance of priorities in one's life. Where are your priorities? Are you a workaholic? Do you constantly put work in place of going to a child's sport event or concert? Do you pray and ask God for forgiveness and then allow his grace and love to enter into your heart and life?

I believe this movie will help you with thinking about all of these questions and more. It is a movie worth taking the time to view.
