ReviewSource The New York Times
Review Wrestling the good book from the hands of Mammon and dragging wealthy believers back to first principles can be an uphill job. So in The Second Chance, two young pastors from opposite ends of the economic spectrum join forces to combat urban rot the old-fashioned way: with hands-on assistance and plenty of singing...Startlingly direct if unavoidably preachy, The Second Chance takes aim at Christianity's racial divide and the corporatization of faith. Its message is simple: being a Christian requires more than just dropping a check in the collection plate every Sunday morning.
Reviewer Jeannette Catsoulis
ReviewRating 7
Review As divided as the two very different churches at its center, "The Second Chance" reps an uneasy marriage of spiritual conviction and dramatic expedience. Ambitious and sincere in the concerns it addresses -- specifically, the challenges facing inner-city ministries and the human pettiness that hinders the gospel's social-justice mandate -- the crisply made feature delivers an involving if not always persuasive portrait of religious leaders in conflict.
