In this episode of the top 50 Christian Films, I explore past favorites along with some new and promising film companies who are currently making Christian movies into mainstream theatres. These movies are ones I would recommend however with any recommendation comes a caution to parents. The information is provided as a base for your own favorite list, watch these first before allowing your children to view them, unattended.

Show Notes: Top 50 Christian Films

Praise God and Hallelujah, the recent filmmaking industry has vastly improved in their creations of productions with a Christian theme. It was difficult to convince my young children to watch anything not animated or humorous. As my daughter often reminded me, Christian themes are sad because Jesus dies. Yes. But, He also rises from the dead!

All of these movies obviously have religious undertones or they would not be on this list. Some have been viewed by me, or relatives of mine that I trust! If I have not bolded the title, I have not seen the movie. Please watch any movie you wish to show your young children or even teens. Listen to this podcast for more details.
