The Year of the Christian Movie

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like this year may be the year of the Christian (or at least, Christian themed) movie.  It seems to me that there are way more movies coming out with Bible/Faith based stories than I remember seeing in previous years - and they all seem like they are pretty big.  Obviously, the Son of God movie was just recently in theaters , and this spring, several more are coming…
