ATTENTION! This is NOT the new feature film! That DVD is now available HERE.
A rare and hard-to-find rerelease of the J. Arthur Rank historical classic made in 1954. The only other feature film ever made about John Wesley other than the exciting new release from Foundery Pictures.
This cinema drama follows the life of Wesley from when he was saved out of a burning house as a child and thereby marked for life as a "brand from the burning." His Oxford days, a disastrous mission to America, his decisive Aldersgate experience, his bringing the Gospel into the daily lives of alienated masses, the founding of Methodism, and his astounding role in raising the moral and religious climate in 18th century England, and much more are set forth with careful dependence on the historical sources.
John Wesley was one of the most influential ministers in all of Christian history, and this old but still potent film provides an excellent introduction to the major events in his life and the many obstacles he had to overcome. Though dated in feel, the movie is a classic of Christian history.
