“In a world of choices, one leads to hope.”

“Sarah’s Hope” is a Christian film trying to deliver a positive message to the youth culture about faith and redemption.

First, to understand the film, it is important to understand the mission of the film company Creation Six. Here is their mission statement.

“Creation Six Productions is committed to producing Christ-honoring films and materials that present hope through the truths of God’s Word. By contrasting the two worldviews of evolution versus a literal, six-day creation as told in the Bible, Creation Six desires to help audiences see the awesome hope available through belief in the Creator God, and the hopelessness offered by evolution.

Creation Six aspires to produce wholesome, entertaining, quality films that provide an alternative for families today. This company certain succeeds in fulfilling that mission with this drama.”

“Sarah’s Hope” is about a 16 year-old girl who is hurting over the death of her sister Lauren. She is caught up in the culture that tries to find fun at parties and staying out late. Sarah begins to long for something more. She notices a classmate named Rebecca that shares some of the same beliefs as her sister. In a heartwarming way, Rebecca begins to share her faith. There are some strong segments that demonstrate a Christian’s opposition to the theory of Evolution. The Creation Six web site at www.creation6.com also contains some helpful facts about Creation.

I do recommend this film without any reservation. It is the perfect length for a youth meeting, witnessing at home or as a set up for discussion. The film does present the Gospel, but it may not be enough to convince someone living in sin. The story should encourage Christian teens to remember how important their witness is and standing up for what they believe. This may open other doors to share your faith.

The DVD contains two versions of the film. One version has a mild, indirect sexual reference, and one doesn’t contain anything offensive. I honestly don’t think that the first version will offend most Christian audiences. I also think that the story needs that plot point to really make the case for hope.

Violence: None / Profanity: None / Sex/Nudity: None

Positive—I have used this film in ministry for many years now; I would recommend it for all teen and tween girls. It deals with faith and every day living. In my usage of this film, we have had over 100 people affirm there choice to follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

May God Bless Steve (the producer) and the homeschool group for the time and trouble they have gone through to make this film available to those who will use it to bring the truth of God’s word to the lost. …
