Audience Reviews for The Gospel Road


Johnny and June gave it a good shot. It was an honest storyline of Jesus' purpose, but failed to paint an accurate portrayal of the cultural context. But who knows, maybe Jesus was a blonde haired blue eyed hippie? Gotta love the 70's..

A nice 70s film with some good music and wonderful messages. If you're a fan of the Man in Black; you’ll probably enjoy this spiritual journey.

I didn't think I"d enjoy Johnny Cash's music until I learned of his faith. This movie shows that and more.
