Undaunted by Josh McDowell - REVIEWED


About the Film:
Undaunted—both the book and  movie—chronicles the riveting true story of a young farm boy named Josh who carried unspeakable memories of an alcoholic father and a farmhand’s abuse, causing him to defy God’s existence. Yet God redeemed a horrible situation with his unbelievable grace. Today Josh McDowell is one of the most popular evangelists in the world who defends the reality of Jesus Christ to millions through his presentations and classic book More Than a CarpenterUndaunted unfolds the dramatic spiritual transformation in Josh’s life when he faces his past head-on and puts everything entirely in God’s hands. The result is an undaunted faith, a gift freely offered to everyone who seeks it.

My Thoughts:
Sometimes, I benefit greatly by approaching a review opportunity with very little information.  I didn't even read the back cover of this DVD before I popped it in the player.  What I experienced, as a result, was something very moving, challenging and ultimately encouraging and uplifting.  I was familiar with Josh McDowell's ministry, but never dreamed what he had lived through prior to experiencing God's grace in his own life.

What a mighty God we serve!! So merciful, so powerful, so long-suffering, so loving and so tender toward His children!!  Prepare to have your heart challenged and changed as you watch this film.  It is a powerful evangelical tool as well!  I am SO THANKFUL that Josh McDowell heeded God's call! Amazing!

Thank you for this informative post. His book, More Than a Carpenter is my favorite and I learned about that he also wrote her own bio from from this site http://booksforevangelism.org/undaunted-by-josh-d-mcdowell/. Thank you for this post, now I know that ‘Undaunted’ has been made into a movie/documentary.I will definitely check out the DVD. Thank you!
