2. THE CASE FOR CHRIST
THE CASE FOR CHRIST is the inside story of how Chicago Tribune journalist Lee Strobel, who set out to disprove Christianity when his wife, Leslie, became a Christian and challenged Lee’s atheism. MOVIEGUIDE® Award-nominee THE CASE FOR CHRIST is a powerful drama reminiscent of ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, with its own examples of excellent acting.

The movie is very clean and evangelical, with brief war violence and deep, insightful discussions about why bad things happen to good people.
6. THE STAR
THE STAR is a wonderful, hilarious, deeply reverential animated family movie centered on the birth of Jesus, but from the perspective of a lowly donkey named Bo.

SAMSON is biblical drama about the man Samson, whom God gave supernatural strength to defeat the Philistines who harshly ruled over the Hebrew people in Israel. Though the production values falter at times, SAMSON has some exciting moments, with a very strong Christian, biblical worldview that honors the One True God of Israel. Caution is advised for some intense violence, however.
