Not what I was hoping for
2 stars By Karen, Apr 02 2016
I watched this movie with my teenage son. Unfortunately we found the story quite slow and difficult to get into. I did however quite enjoy the travel back to bible times as the story of Hosea was told. This part had me looking at Hosea through new eyes and motivated me to read the book of Hosea from the Bible which was an unexpected bonus. Also prompted a few discussion points with my son. Not a movie that we will race back to watch a second time.

Helpful Interpretation
4 stars By Karen, Nov 22 2013
I enjoyed this movie, and it was nice to see a sensitive book of the Bible interpreted in an appropriate way.  Whilst the acting in parts was slightly less than five star, I didn't find it detracted too heavily from the movie, and the value of seeing the story of Hosea onscreen outweighed what the film slightly lacked in finesse.  Amazing Love was certainly worth the watch, and I think it conveys a great message for our time, and not just for the days of Hosea.  God doesn't change, nor His message, and unfortunately, neither do human beings!  So the retelling of the book of Hosea will have value simply because of the timeless message that God is sending us, and that was what made this movie worth watching for me.  Recommended!

Great!
4 stars By Vicky, May 27 2013
This movie successfully ties in the themes that are drawn from the book of Hosea - God's amazing love for His people and His redemption plan for us - to be applicable to the average high schooler. I particularly enjoyed the biblical narrative half of the movie when the teacher 'flashes back' to the book of Hosea, and how this story changes the way the students relate to each other and to God.
