I want to HIGHLY recommend the movie "Amazing Grace" about William Wilberforce. I was very impressed with it. It is so rare to find a movie so well made that is also unashamed of the gospel and actually uses the name of Christ in a worshipful way! I decided after seeing it last night that I wanted to learn more about Wilberforce (and also about John Newton who wrote the song "Amazing Grace"). Then, today, I received an email from Christian Audio Books saying that I could get one for free–so I chose John Piper’s biography of William Wilberforce. It’s now on my iPod, and I can’t wait to listen to it!
And I agree. It is excellent. I had been wanting to see it and our library bought a copy so I was delighted to check it out and watch it.
I found I was most intrigued by the protrayl of ISaac Watts and realizing how his history before Christ must have impacted him so much.
