This is an outstanding movie one of the best I have seen in a long time.
The special feature interviews with Ben are a treat what a gentle person. If you have seen Ben's video Gifted Hands where he tells his own story you will not be disappointed by the portrayal here. Buy both! Then read Surgeon General Everett Koop's autobiography they go together well and are riveting.
This is a fantastic story about a mother's dream and wish for her sons and with her determination and prayer made what seemed the impossible become reality. Now this same young man will be running for President of the United States and is a real deal Christian with his past to prove it. There is still hope! Thank you Jesus!
