Stephen's Test of Faith

For Christmas, I ordered NetFlix for the Wii.  The family has really enjoyed the service so far.  Tonight I found Stephen's Test of Faith and decided to let the kids watch it. It's a 30 minute movie about a 12 year old boy who is challenged by bullies after sharing his grandfather's bible in class.  His father explains where his name comes from and then it moves into a dream like state where he sees how Christians were persecuted through the ages and still stood up for Christ.

This movie certainly appeals to a younger audience. I would suggest younger teens and under.  My 10 year old and 3 year old both could not turn their heads from the show.  It's short and makes an impact. In addition to that, it is a good visual for kids who are facing the same thing on a daily basis.  Following Christ is not always an easy thing.
