Amazing Grace: The Movie

       

Today the motion picture Amazing Grace opens in theaters across the United States. It’s already playing in the UK. It opens in the U.K. March 23. 

Consider making it a point to see this movie this weekend.  It’s a powerful story of courage and faithfulness, telling the story of the man God used to bring an end to slavery in England.

Visit the site and watch the trailer. 

And yes, that will be Chris Tomlin you hear singing.

  • The Amazing Change : Help end modern day slavery in other countries.
  • Amazing Grace in the life of William Wilberforce: Read this book free online (PDF) courtesy of Desiring God Ministries.  Description:

    Against great obstacles William Wilberforce, an evangelical member of Parliament, fought for the abolition of the African slave trade and against slavery itself until they were both illegal in the British Empire. Many are aware of Wilberforce’s role in bringing an end to slavery in Great Britain, but few have taken the time to examine his beliefs and motivations that spurred him on for decades. In this concise volume, John Piper tells the story of Wilberforce’s transformation from an unbelieving young politician into a radically God-centered Christian and how his deep spirituality helped to change the moral outlook of a nation.

    As world leaders debate over how to deal with a host of social justice and humanitarian crises, a closer look at Wilberforce’s life and faith serves as an encouragement and an example to all believers.

  • Listen to music inspired by the movie from artists Smokie Norful, Chris Tomlin, Martina McBride, Kierra Kiki Sheard, Jars of Clay, Steven Curtis Chapman, Bethany Dillon, Shawn McDonald, Jeremy Camp, Natalie Grant, Bart Millard, Nicole Nordeman, Avalon, and a duet with the David Crowder*Band and Marty Stuart.  Some samples are online.
