A Guide To Watching Good Religious Films™

I really like the idea of tackling faith in films. It's such an interesting concept and there's so much to work from when creating a fictional story. Some of my favorite films are ones that question or discuss religion, faith, and the universe. But there's a small issue...

In a world filled with films like God's Not Dead and Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas, it's hard to know which religious/faith based films are actually worth watching.

With this list, now you know which ones to watch!
