Journey To Bethlehem
Movie Reviews
“It is a love story: the love between a man and a woman; the love between a king and his throne; and most importantly, the love that our Creator has for His creation—and how that love manifested in one cosmos-changing gift. And let’s not forget all the song-and-dance numbers!”

“This is a heartfelt, charming musical twist on the classic nativity story. Director/co-writer Adam Anders (‘Glee,’ ‘Rock of Ages’) blends traditional Christmas music (like ‘O Come, O Come, Emmanuel’) with new songs to retell the familiar story of the Nativity.”

“Great movie musical for the whole family! Easy to love. It had drama, intrigue, laughter, and it showed the account from a human point of view.

This reminds us that they too experienced things like we experience them.”
