Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Its portrayal of patience, kindness, and forgiveness as the life-changing forces of Christianity for those who give as well as those who receive are undeniably touching.

Audience Reviews for The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry

I don't mind a good faith based movie if it tells an interesting story and is designed to have faith as an aspect of that story. This is a story where they set out to bring faith to the masses and added a simple story, albeit with a good message, around that idea. It makes the movie feel more like a lesson and less like entertainment. The acting is okay. The story is too basic and at times boring. I liked it but won't watch it again or recommend it to others.

A good movie even for a non-christian like myself. Robert Guillaume was a surprise because I missed his name in the credits. Glad to see him though.
