Make sure you go by the movie website and take in all that it has to offer. I had to write you because one of their offerings was a free, downloadable pdf of John Newton’s Olney Hymns! In the film, Wilberforce will have some interaction with John Newton (played by Albert Finney–he’s the only one I’ve heard of in the film), hence the title, and hence their thinking to post a copy of his hymns for us to enjoy. Save your copy today, and enrich your theology and your doxology!
Amazing Grace on the Silver Screen
I’m a movie buff. It may not be a mark of quality to some of you. One side of my brain is all theology, but the other side is all pop culture. I’m an armchair theologian, but before I moved to the armchair, I was a couch potato. I didn’t even have to leave the room! That’s why I’m looking forward to the February 23rd release of the new movie about William Wilberforce, called Amazing Grace! I think I’ll have to see it twice, once as the couch potato, once as the armchair theologian . . .
