I highly recommend renting or even buying this film. Like a skunk calling itself a "perfume puppy," there is a lot of literal trash coming out of Hollywood calling itself "entertainment" and "art." One needs look no further than what the main and sole subject of this blog has been the past two weeks: the Dakota Fanning, Hounddog movie, which features a rape scene of 12-year-old Dakota's character, among other things. To learn more, simply view the recent archives of the blog. Stay tuned for more updates on the situation, which are almost certain to come in not too long.
Here, then, we find a movie in One Night with the King, as my article states, that is "Worthy of Our Hearts, Minds, and Money." Is this not something we should support, as part of our statement in the bigger entertainment industry picture? I realize, and point out in the article, that the movie has its flaws. However, I've come to the conclusion that those flaws are not nearly sufficient in making this a movie not worthy of our minds and money. I also recognize the qualms of portraying the Bible on the big screen, and filling in the gaps with man's imagination. But, the entertainment industry is becoming a more and more effective and popular medium to get the Word of God to unbelievers, and the gaps simply have to be filled to make the aforementioned medium usable. As long as you are not claiming that all of it is Scripture, or that it all holds the inerrancy of Scripture, I don't see too big of a problem.
