Review: The Grandfather's DVD

I was given the opportunity to review the new movie, The Grandfathers. You have probably heard of The End of the Spear -the powerful story of 5 missionaries killed in Ecuador, most widely known of whom were Jim Elliot and Nate Saint. The Grandfathers is kind of a follow up on the story from the point of view of the grandson of Nate Saint, Jesse Saint. This is an amazing movie which was an interesting narration of many clips, photos, and movies, actually you'd probably classify it as a documentary, but it was too interesting to be called that. :) In the movie Jesse Saint tells the story of really the burden of his family legacy and how he eventually adopted the men who killed his grandfather as his own grandfathers. It is a great story of forgiveness and God's grace and redemption.

This movie is actually being called the last of a trilogy including The End of the Spear and the documentary -Beyond the Gates of Splendor. I have never seen the second movie in this series, so I am anxious to get it on Netflix. I really enjoyed this movie and I would highly recommend it for your family! It is rated PG for some violence, there are some images and discussion of spearing, maybe some slight glimpses of some underdressed natives, but nothing at all graphic. It has been awarded the Dove Foundation seal of approval. If you go to THIS SITE you can see the movie trailer as well as purchase the movie for $19.95.

I was sent The Grandfathers by B&B Media group and EGM Films for review purposes only.
