Word Films announces the March 11 DVD release of faith-based film “My Name is Paul” by producers Jurgen Beck and Vanessa Ore. The film, using the analogy of the Apostle Paul who started as a zealous persecutor of Christians, follows Paul’s hate-filled intentions to destroy Peter (the enemy of his leader) when an unforeseen accident and miraculous self-discovery lead him down a different path where he learns to live and love “The Way” (Christ). “My Name is Paul” stars Michael Joiner of “The Grace Card” and Shannen Fields of “Facing the Giants” and has been awarded the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12+.
“If God can use a guy like Paul, who called himself the Chief of Sinners, what can He do with a guy like me or the person that watches this film,” said the film’s director Trey Ore. “Paul is one of the most referenced people in the Bible, yet many don't know how ruthless this man truly was. I now have a better understanding of what grace is all about. So, if we can help even one person understand that we are never too far for God to reach us, this film was worth making.”
Ore continued, “After our first private screening of ‘My Name is Paul’ I was told how this movie spoke to a Vietnam veteran that had been haunted for the last 40 years by his past difficult missions and decisions. When this man saw how ruthless Paul was and that God still had a purpose for him, it gave him hope. He saw that God's grace could cover even his transgressions.”
"From the moment I arrived on the set of ‘My Name is Paul’ I knew that God was present in a very special way...and sure enough these filmmakers have taken a small budget and made a film a hundred times greater,” said Michael Joiner. “I have seen the movie twice now and feel it is destined to be one of the greatest faith based films ever made. Not only creatively, but also in its ability to reach a hurting world for the Gospel. I am extremely blessed to have been a part."

The film is the follow up film to the award-winning short film by the same name and winner of “Redemptive Storyteller Award” at the 2011 Redemptive Film Festival, an official selection of the 2011UK Christian Film Festival, the 2011 International Christian Film Festival, the 2011 Maranatha Christian International Film Festival, the 2011San Diego Christian Film Festival and the 2011 Kingdomwood Film Festival. It has a running time of 100 minutes.
My Name is Paul is a fantastic DVD. It tells the Bible story of Paul, but in the present/future kind of setting.
All of the people’s names are the same as the Bible and the Christians are called The Way and the ones against them and anything to do with the Bible are called The World.
My Name is Paul is a very action-packed, suspenseful DVD. It shows how Christians were persecuted, are and will be again to a very big way. The first few scenes shows Paul chasing down Christians and killing them and how Paul is recognized as a great leader.
The Paul is in a car accident and loses his sight and gets lost. The members of The Way pick him up take him to their hospital and then the action really starts.
I was really excited to get and review this DVD. It is a incredible one to show to your family, church or other groups. You will be entertained and amazed at My Name is Paul. I highly recommend it and want you to know it would be an excellent addition to your DVD collection.
