No Greater Love

"The Ultimate Gift" is an upcoming movie starring Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin, James Garner, and Brian Dennehy. It is coming out on March 9, 2007. It's based on the book, which, coincidentally enough, was also named "The Ultimate Gift". The book has sold over 4 million copies worldwide and is an underground hit!

"The Ultimate Gift” movie, like the book, is based on the message: "The only way you can truly get more out of life for yourself is to give part of yourself away."

Through pre-screenings alone, this powerful movie has already generated over $5 million in donations to charity. Meanwhile, schools are incorporating the message into their curriculum. And “The Ultimate Gift” has even sparked a unique teen philanthropy initiative called “Show Of Hands”.

The film is a heartfelt, values-oriented movie. It doesn't base its appeal on the multi-million dollar budgets of most Hollywood blockbusters. Yet 20th Century Fox saw something in this little movie powerful enough to get it in 800 theaters for its release.

The phrase "The Ulimate Gift" - especially with a tagline appealing with us to give ourselves away reminds me of the Biblical passage where Christ says, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13 - KJV)
