The favorite’s are:

SpokaneFAVS writers came up with a long list of movies they felt fell in the “faith based” category.

Robert Hemphill says “Children of Men” is his favorite, if we include biblical imagery.

Babette’s Feast” is the Rev. Liv Larson Andrew‘s fave.

The 1990 classic, “The Mission“, starring Robert DiNero and Jeremy Irons, is the Rev. Scott Kinde- Pyle‘s first vote. But he also likes “The End of the Affair,” “Places in the Heart” and “Tree of Life.”

Jan Shannon couldln’t pick just one.”Stigmata,” and “The Body,” Both, she said, because they make you consider miracles. “Contact,” is another, “because it just makes you think,” she added.

Amy Rice chose three: “Les Miserables,” “The Blind Side,” and “The Ultimate Gift.”

The Trouble with Angels” is what our Catholic writer Colleen McClean chose.

The Rev. Andy CastroLang said “The Rugrats Passover Movie” is her favorite faith-based flick.

I like “Higher Ground” with Vera Farmiga, who also directed,” said Jewish writer Neal Schindler.

The Rev. Deb Conklin claims “The Legend of Bagger Vance” as her favorite.

“It has been described as racist. But I experienced it as a moving redemption story, which makes it faith-based in my book,” she said.

Anna Marie Martin recommends “The Apostle” with Robert Duvall. She said it’s an amazing film about a minister who is both called and troubled.
