AN AUDIO SNAPSHOT REVIEW
In the faith-based theatrical release titled What If…, Ben Walker is a high-rolling investment banker who just closed on a huge business deal. With that comes a promotion, a sporty luxury car, and a planned trip to Paris with his girlfriend. For Ben this is what life is all about.
But Ben hasn't always been so shallow. Fifteen years prior, he was seminary bound and in a committed relationship with a girl named Wendy. But a situation required the couple to part for eight months. Ben promised to return. Ben lied.
And then one day—back in the present—Ben has an encounter with an angel. This angelic being explains that every now and then God gives certain individuals a second chance to see what life would have been like had they made different choices. For Ben that means that in an It's a Wonderful Life fashion, he's now married to Wendy. They have two daughters. He's a pastor. And, really, he's none to happy about any of it. One thing's for certain, though: Life as he knows it is about to change big time.
What If… creatively points out the emptiness of living for money and prestige while underscoring the importance of family, faith and seeking God's perfect plan for one's life.
