For King & Country: Priceless Book & Movie Giveaway

Human Trafficking and Faith 


"Priceless" is a movie that will capture the hearts of audiences around the world who watch it. Human Trafficking isn't just something America deals with or other countries, but something we can all take a stance on and say no more. This movie is about a young man who finds himself rescuing girls and young women from a life of death, destruction and despair. 
It will not only captivate your attention, but will cultivate a mind shift if you have never given the thought that women and children are trafficked in your neighborhood every day.  The main character is James Stevens. He turned to alcohol after losing his wife, several jobs and ultimately had to take a job driving trucks carrying cargo across the country for cash. 
While James was on his way to drop off a load of cargo he got tired one evening and almost crashed into a semi, but flew off the road and that is where he found out his cargo was something different. This led to a series of him beginning to ask questions about his cargo, but it wasn't until he had to deliver it, did James realize what had really happened. 
All this to say, the movie was well done. The movie managed to have guns, blood and minimal violence, while not being an "R" film, yet conveying a huge message through the movie. This wasn't a low budget cheap Christian film. This movie was done very well and I was encouraged by the plot, the cast members and also the thrills of the ups and downs of this movie. The movie had moments that were expected and other moments that completely took me by surprise, but all in all, I really enjoyed this movie. I give this movie 5/5 stars. I was given the opportunity to screen this video in my home before it has been released to the public. I was not compensated for a positive review and this review is my own.



About the book:
James Stevens was, at one time, a good man with a great life. After the tragic death of his wife and losing custody of his little girl, James is at the darkest crossroad of his life. Angry, desperate, and unable to hold down a steady job, he agrees to drive a box truck on a shady, one-time trip cross country for cash—no questions asked. When he discovers what he is delivering is actually a who, the questions in his mind begin haunting him mercilessly. James becomes an unlikely hero who must fight to save the lives of two young women and finds himself falling in love with one of them.
Can love, strength, and faith redefine his past and change the course of his future?
 


My Thoughts:
If you think the movie sounds great, you'll love the book just the same! The authors did a fantastic job with "Priceless She's Worth Fighting For" by Joel Smallbone. You'll love the book just the same as the movie and find that the book will show you that women should be valued. I loved the booked. Would I recommend one over the other? No. I think both play vital role and both mediums of media should be consumed for different reasons but I am going to leave that up to you! I give this book 5/5 stars. Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy.

I've never seen the movie or read the book, but it sounds good.

As for why I'm priceless... I'd say it's because I'm a child of God.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Wow. This sounds really good. =) Well, I'm priceless because I am in my Lord's eyes, that's love. Even though we may not always think that for ourselves or others, He thinks we are and that's why we are.
