A Youth Pastor (Sean Astin) and his wife take 5 teens on a weekend camping trip. A conflict results between two of them and creates tension in the camp. To try and resolve this, the Youth Pastor tells the teens the story of the Old Testament prophet, Hosea. This movie offers real inspiration through the character of Hosea and presents an example of unconditional love for marriages.

This movie is told as a story within a story. A group of church youth go on a camping trip and there are some interpersonal issues. So the Youth Pastor tells them a story around the campfire. That story is the story of Hosea, which we see historically dramatized. To be honest, the production value is not quite up to Hollywood standards, but it's good enough. And some of the young actors are not that strong. But I was very impressed with the handling of the Hosea story and it's meaning is communicated very well. Sean Astin as the Youth Pastor does a great job with what he has to work with (a very simple character with very little depth, but effective enough to get the job done, which is to tell the Hosea story). The Book of Hosea is not a very popular book of the Bible, but it tells a very fundamental story about the heart (and the heartbreak) that God has for all people that everyone needs to hear and understand. Regardless of the somewhat mediocre production value of this movie, there is some real moving and effective content in this film; enough to where I would recommend this movie for anyone interested in what the God of the Bible is about.

AMAZING LOVE...;.AMAZING TRUE SHOW!!!
Verified purchase
Wow, I started this video because I saw I noticed the same guy that played in "Rudy" (another great movie) I felt the movie was going sort of slow at first but when I continued watching it I couldn't stop watching it. I wish there were more good positive movies like this. You leave feeling the love of God and His power. Unlike most movies in theaters done by Hollywood that are mostly disappointing and doesn't leave you anything but waste of time and using my Lords name in vain and watching people have sex. I am so glad stories like Amazing Love (a story out of the bible) exist because I can learn and feel good watching them even as a family!!!

Surprisingly Wonderful
Verified purchase
I really liked the Hosea telling, regarding the Northern Kingdom & HaShem’s love for his children....even in this exception to having one of His own marry a prostitute to demonstrate pain and unselfish love...an eternal truth. The punishment He promised for disobedience, comes where the movie leaves off..... and if you know your Bible, it’s horrific. Nevertheless, it gives hope & proves HIS love. This is a perfect picture of Yeshua’s love for His Bride of Israel, & for those who attach themselves to the God of Israel. Blessed Be HE.

Great All Around Christian Faith Based Movie
Verified purchase
This is a great Christian faith based movie. It follows much in the vein of the movies that Kirk Cameron has been doing. It follows the Bible book Hosea and his story to parallel God's love for his people. I thought the acting was good and the story moves along well. The interactions between the characters and how the story would end was a bit obvious but it didn't bother me. I would recommend this movie to any individual and especially to families for a family night movie so that you don't have to worry about what your kids will see or hear.

Little Known Bible Gem

This is one of those understated, but consequential and life changing Bible stories. This one presented in a contemporaneous context, to bring forth its full force.

Really shows the attitude with which our young people operate in, even in our churches. The story was well done and I appreciated the way it was made clear where they were adding their own spin on the story and not trying to pass it off as the Word itself. It is scary to see some of the movies come out that add to or take away from the actual Word. People that do not and/or have never read the Word, take these things to be reality and are open to deception

Jesus Christ is our Hosea!
Verified purchase
This movie is very relevant nowadays when people have been "selling" their love and attention to these modern-day idols.

This movie is well-made: it's mostly centered on the Hosea story, with a background story about a broken-hearted girl, which is told in a campfire & storytelling setting, and we learn how it applies to us and how we should have God's eyes to love as He does (and showed with Hosea) it also ties the significance of Hosea's story with the Cross of Jesus Christ and how Christ is Hosea for each and every one of us who have forgotten Him and looked for "other" to confide and delight in. This is a heart-felt movie RECOMMENDED

Good Movie
Verified purchase
A movie with a great message on showing love and compassion to those who have hurt you the most. Expanding the story of Hosea, but including word for word recitation from the prophet's book, we are given a picture of God's great love for us, His pain when we reject him, and his desire to rescue us when our own way has gone horribly wrong. The costuming for the biblical scenes is rather poor, but you don't notice after a while. There is something special about this movie.
