An honest deal...

I've got a movie to add to your "must see" list.

Flywheel is the first movie produced by the Kendrick brothers and Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, GA, and it's a keeper. The quality of the video and acting isn't as good as Sherwood Pictures' later releases - Facing the Giants and Fireproof (I'm going to see it tonight) - but the story is great.

The film tells the tale of a not-so-honest used car salesman, Jay Austin, a who sees the light and leaves his thieving, deceiving ways behind to follow Jesus.

(Spoiler warning! Read no further if you don't want to know the rest of the story.)

In a Zacchaeus meets the 21st century twist, the new Jay Austin returns the money he cheated people out of before his conversion. The stunned folks thank him, praise God and, in one case, rebuke him. The last one is great comedy.

You'll find yourself laughing, crying and praising God with your family as you watch this story of God's grace and blessing unfold. Go get it!
