We recently got to see Redeeming Love, the movie based on the novel written by Francine Rivers, based on the biblical book of Hosea. I think I can best describe it as Intense and serious. It represented the story well, showing that real folks live real messed up lives and that when one is taken advantage of they can become hard hearted and bitter, and yet …. Love overcomes, again and again. God’s forgiveness and love is so far beyond our understanding. This movie is a love story but not your average love story. It is His love story. No matter what you have done or how far you have gone, He is there, waiting. As far as movies go, it has VERY adult themes, so proceed with caution and I would not say for family viewing. And tissue, you will need tissue. It opens in theaters Friday Jan 21. I would love to hear what you think.
Based on the bestselling novel by Francine Rivers, REDEEMING LOVE is a powerful
story of relentless love and perseverance as a young couple’s relationship clashes with the harsh realities of the California Gold Rush of 1850.
Angel expects only pain from those around her. Sold into prostitution as a child, Angel survives with hatred towards herself and the men that use her. She meets Michael Hosea, a farmer who believes God wants Angel to be his wife. Dire circumstances force Angel to accept his proposal, but when Michael defies her bitter expectations, her wounded heart begins to mend.
As Angel encounters a love unlike anything she ever experienced, feelings of unworthiness and shame cause her to run from a life she doesn’t think she deserves. As Michael sets out to find her, Angel discovers there is no brokenness that love can’t heal.
