Abel’s Field recounts the compelling and captivating story of Seth (Samuel Davis), a high-school teen who finds himself in severe hardship, carrying burdens no 17-year-old should ever have to bear.
To add to Seth’s difficulties, the school coach seems to have it in for him. Seth not only has to work two jobs to pay the family bills, but he also has to work a third, unpaid job to meet the coach’s exigencies. All this on his plate while also caring for younger siblings.
But God has not forgotten Seth. He is waiting to be merciful and gracious to him. Seth, on the other hand, seems to have forgotten God—or at least forgotten how simple it is to lay his burdens at the feet of Jesus. Seth has forgotten that God is only a prayer away.
Hard as Seth’s hopeless dilemma is, he will need to reach rock bottom to realize God is right there with a provision. And it will take a special newfound friend (Kevin Sorbo)—someone who had to reach rock bottom himself in order to discover God’s goodness—to to help him grab God’s hand.
Abel’s Field is a family-friendly movie full of surprises. But don’t mistake family-friendly for warm and fuzzy. The story has many twists and turns and will keep you riveted till the end.
Abel’s Field highlights the fact that sometimes heroes are on the sidelines. The DVD is definitely worth purchasing and viewing again and again as a reminder of God's faithfulness.
