My 10 Favorite-God Glorifying Movies; What Are Yours?

I know, I know. When it comes to God, Hollywood hasn’t exactly fallen over itself to exalt the Creator of Heaven and Earth.

However, quite a few movies have endeavored to bring glory to God and/or His Son, Jesus Christ. Most of them go back quite a bit in time, though this century has seen a rise in God-glorifying productions. Because I love movies from the “Golden Age” of Hollywood, my favorites go quite a ways back. Here, in order, are my top 10 God-glorifying movies:

  1. Ben-Hur (1959)
  2. Chariots of Fire (1981)
  3. Jesus of Nazareth (1977, TV miniseries)
  4. The Passion of the Christ (2004)
  5. A Man for All Seasons (1966)
  6. The Robe (1953)
  7. Quo Vadis (1951)
  8. Samson and Delilah (1949)
  9. Brother Son, Sister Moon (1972)
  10. The Ten Commandments (1956)

I’d love to hear what your favorites are. You can list as many or few as you see fit. Please share on either the bottom of this post, or on Facebook, for those of you who linked to this post from there. Thanks!
