It's the story of young Tyler, suffering from an incurable type of brain cancer, who deals with his affliction by writing letters to God - letters which end up transforming the lives of virtually everyone he knows and many people he doesn't know.

Tyler becomes - in the words of Mr. Perryfield who's played by Ralph Waite, who may be the only actor in this I was familiar with - "God's warrior. In a way, the movie and the story is a living witness to Jesus' parable of the mustard seed. That background aside, what of the movie itself? Frankly, it's not bad and it's not great. I think that people are going to end up judging this on the basis of their own belief or lack of belief in God rather than on the actual quality of the movie. Christians are going to love it and give it a lot of 10's; atheists are going to hate it and give it a lot of 1's.

As with any movie of this type, though, the question that comes to my mind is why an atheist would want to watch it. As a Christian, I want to say honestly that there were parts of this movie that I really liked, and parts that I didn't care for at all. To start with what I didn't care for because I want to end on a positive note. It pounds away at every evangelical Christian theme over and over again. For a movie that in many ways is quite touching, it's pretty hard sell. It seems to be an evangelistic effort - which surprises me a bit since this probably isn't going to attract very many who are outside the faith to watch it.

On the other hand, I suppose, "there's rejoicing in heaven over one It's close to two hours long, and after a while it loses some of its impact just because it keeps making the same points repeatedly.

Interview with Letters to God Co-Director Patrick Doughtie

In all honesty, this likely could have been cut by about half an hour without losing any of its impact - and might have had even more impact if it were cut by half an hour. Tyler's story is great - at least according to this he faced his death with great courage - but I wondered about the decision to end the movie with stories of people of faith who've recovered from cancer and are going on with life.

That doesn't prove much. There are many stories of people without faith who've recovered from cancer, and many stories of people with great faith who don't recover.

'Letters to God' film has moving true story

I fear that in the end those stories tended to blur the memory of Tyler's story, which to me offered a far more powerful witness to the importance of faith - that faith could give a young boy the courage to face his own death and still keep the needs of others first and foremost in his thoughts because many of the letters he wrote to God were intercessions for others. To me, that was far more important than the stories of the cancer survivors at the end of the movie. I also have to be honest and say that I was turned off by Brady taking over Tyler's moment at the end.

I understand that it was a way of showcasing Tyler's faith and his impact on people, but it seemed to move the spotlight on to Brady at that moment - which was not where it should have been! But there was a lot here I liked as well. I liked the movie's simplicity.

There's nothing complicated about it. It's a straightforward story about faith, courage and transformation - and there's nothing wrong with that. From a Christian perspective, I liked the depiction of prayer in this. Those praying weren't praying especially for Tyler's healing - they were praying for strength and courage - for him, for themselves and for others.

Surely that's what faith is about. As a pastor, if I'm dealing with someone who's dying or who's loved one is dying, I'm not going to pray with them primarily for healing; I'm going to pray with them primarily for strength.

In that sense, the focus on Tyler's story makes the point that healing isn't always about the recovery of the body - sometimes healing is about the wellness of the spirit. Tyler's spirit was strong and healthy regardless of his body's condition. That was a good message. It seemed to me that this movie sums up why it is that Jesus spoke so approvingly of children and even used them as examples for adults - children can cut through the nonsense and see God where adults who are perhaps more jaded can't.

They have simple and innocent faith and they know how to trust. Tyler becomes the example for those around him. And you made me thinking - Was that what people like you thought of me back then? Did they think my friend and I were ganging up on the others? Dear Sarah, if you hated Linda, so do I. But then Sarah, didnt Amy tell you that her bad and nasty behaviour might be a cry for help? Why didnt you try, at least for once, to approach her and tried to befriend her?

Yeah right, you were busy.

Common Sense says

So you just let her do whatever she wanted to do. But dear Sarah, you should know this one thing - Allah wont change your life when you yourself dont even try to. You shd have stood up for yourself and try to clear up all the misunderstandings, dear! Oh now. I just realised I have written a letter to Sarah. I shd really stop here, shdnt I? By the way Sarah, I love it when you rely on Him, put your trust in Him.

I love it when you use Quran and Hadith as your reference. Thank you for sharing your story with us, Sarah. View 2 comments. May 17, E. Nathasia rated it liked it.

Ramadhan Read Book 1 This was supposed to be one of the books to be read in a week's time but I finished it in a day! A good university student, a muslimah named Sarah writes to Allah SWT to share her experience as a student overseas, her feelings and emotions having to be separate with her parents and bestfriend, her fears confronting bad-intentioned students, etc. She talks to God through her diary entries aka letters. The storyline is a bit monotone to be honest. I Ramadhan Read Book 1 This was supposed to be one of the books to be read in a week's time but I finished it in a day!

I wanted more drama. She is a good student, trying to be a good muslimah and follow God's words. In her letters, she incorporated Quran verses that's easy to understand. In other words, this is a good book to be read if you want a book that delivers good message and values. You won't have to worry that your teenage children or young people to be misled by the messages in this book.

Although in real world, she might probably be thought of as boring or 'skema' as she really try to follow God's words in true sense. The language used in the book is simple language, hence I encourage those who wants to improve their language and is looking for a simple English young adult book genre to read, then this is the book for you.

I have always admire books written by Norhafsah Hamid, among her books that are a fave of mine is Trying to be Muslim and Saya Bukan Fanatik, must read for all muslimah and even non-Muslim women as well. You'll find great insight of a, what I believe to be a Muslimah's journey to be closer to God and her religion. Do give any of her books a try! My rating for this book, 3.
