About 200 faith-based movies have been released in theaters the past two decades. But few of those were box-office hits, and even fewer could be labeled “Bible movies.”
It is rare for a movie based on Scripture – such as 2004’s The Passion of the Christ – to climb into the Top 5, much less to No. 1.
But this doesn’t mean these Bible movies weren’t good. It simply means they didn’t have a large audience. (And we haven’t even mentioned movies that went straight to DVD.)
Here are my seven favorite Bible films that weren’t blockbusters -- but that were nevertheless great movies. More than likely, you’ve never seen them.
