"The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry moved me with its message of the difference one faithful man can make in the lives of many. I recommend this inspiring movie for everyone." - Kirk Cameron, Actor

"I thoroughly enjoyed The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry. Gavin MacLeod is excellently cast as Jonathan Sperry. This film will make you laugh and it’ll bring tears to your eyes, and you’ll find yourself caught up in the story from beginning to end. And it’ll leave you with a clear, concise message of the Gospel. I look forward to wholeheartedly recommending it to our audience." — Clair Miller, Station Manager, WFCJ Radio, Dayton, OH

"Filmmaker Rich Christiano has produced one of his most compelling films in The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry. Set in 1970, the film is visually beautiful. It was precious to see the many viewers streaming out of the theater who were deeply impacted by this heartwarming Gospel story. I predict that Sperry will become a favorite in the Christian community." — Doug Phillps, Founder, San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival

"The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry is a heartwarming experience for the entire family." — Pat Boone, Actor/Singer
