Some fans of "The Passion of the Christ" claim that the Mel Gibson flick has caused miracles -- and now a documentary is in the works to prove it.
Makers of "Changed Lives: Miracles of the Passion" have been interviewing people who say their lives were turned around after they watched the flick. An online solicitation sent to would-be subjects of the film gives examples of the sort of "miracles" the filmmakers are looking for: "a marriage being rescued, an addict who was set free, a Jew who now accepts Jesus as Messiah, someone who experienced physical or emotional healing, and so on."
describing the documentary suggests recording video testimony this way: "Looking right into the camera the entire time, begin speaking as if you're telling your story to a good friend who does not know Jesus and you REALLY want him or her to see the film and be changed like you!"
"We have gone to Web sites where there are in excess of 70,000 stories about how people were touched by this film, so we have plenty to choose from," Executive Producer Jody Eldred tells The Scoop
. The documentary isn't affiliated with Mel Gibson's Icon Productions, says Eldred, but he has been working closely with Icon. "They've seen the trailer. They think it's a cool thing. We have their blessings."
