I Can Only Imagine DVD Review and Giveaway #ICanOnlyImagine #FlyBy

Disclosure:  This movie was provided free of charge for the purpose of this review.



Part of the work I do for this site involves visiting Amazon and a couple categories that I look at daily are kindle books and movies.  I'm always checking out the best-sellers and scouring for deals on movies.  One movie that caught my eye in the last month or so is I Can Only Imagine.  This is a best-selling DVD of a movie I hadn't even heard about until seeing it on Amazon's best seller list. It piqued my curiosity and then I got a chance to review the movie for myself so I could see what had already grabbed so many other's attention.

The film tells the incredible true story behind Christian band
MercyMe’s iconic, history-making song “I Can Only Imagine.” Starring in the
film are up-and-coming Broadway star J. Michael Finley (“Les Miserables”) and
Golden Globe® nominee Dennis Quaid, as well as Trace Adkins, Priscilla C. Shirer, Cloris Leachman, and Madeline Carroll.

Running from a troubled home life and a broken relationship, Bart Millard (Finley) found escape in music. Hitting the road in a decrepit tour bus, Bart and his band MercyMe set out on an amazing journey none of them could have ever imagined, in this uplifting, music-filled movie that beautifully illustrates the power of forgiveness and God’s love.




I've heard the song I Can Only Imagine so many times in my life and sang along without ever really thinking about who wrote the song or why. This movie changed that.  Now whenever I hear the song I will think of the people behind it, our ability to transform and the story of forgiveness.

I started watching the movie with my two youngest kiddos. Next my oldest entered the room and stayed to watch and later when my husband came into the room he ended up not being able to walk away.  The story reeled us in, the music entertained us and the message lifted us up.  I'm glad we got a chance to see it and I look forward to watching it again.

The movie is available now on Amazon.  The home entertainment release of I Can Only Imagine features over 3 hours of extras including 7 deleted scenes, 7 in-depth featurettes, an audio commentary, and more!


The Giveaway:  One lucky winner will receive their own copy of I Can Only Imagine on DVD.  Giveaway is open to US residents only and ends on July 1st. Good luck!
