6. Faith, Hope and Love (2019)
A widower enters a dance contest with his daughter’s (single) dance teacher (played by real-world dancer Peta Murgatroyd). It’s a faith-driven romantic-comedy that includes a few revealing outfits, but for a film in this genre, it’s mostly clean. Rated PG for some thematic elements.

7. Gospel of Matthew/Mark/Luke/John (2014-15)
The Bible comes to live in this excellent four-part film series, which uses the unabridged text of Scripture – word for word – for the script. This means every word you hear is contained in one of the four gospels. It was filmed in Jordan. Rated TV-14.

8. Joseph King of Dreams (2000)
Two years after DreamWorks released the Oscar-winning Prince of Egypt, the studio released this direct-to-video film about the Old Testament patriarch Joseph. It’s a musical that follows Joseph’s story as a teenager and young man, from the time he was sold into slavery by his brothers to the shocking moment when he revealed he was a member of Pharaoh’s court. Rated TV-PG.

9. The Young Messiah (2016)
It’s a live-action film that follows the life of Jesus as a boy. Largely historical fiction, it stays true to the character of Christ and shows him having dominion over evil. Of course, it also reveals him to be a child who never sins. Cyrus Nowrasteh (Infidel, The Stoning of Soraya M.) directed it. Rated PG-13 for some violence and thematic elements.

10. Like Arrows (2018)

Like Arrows is a unique film that follows the couple over five decades – from the moment they choose to get married due to an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, to the celebration of their 50th anniversary. Alex and Stephen Kendrick served as executive producers. Rated TV-PG.
