| My non-Methodist heart was strangely warmed
I was fortunate to stumble across this well crafted drama of the early years of John Wesley's ministry on the Firstlight TV channel in New Zealand. It was quite difficult to find on the IMDb website. For an overtly "Christian" film, it was a surprisingly good film; one I'd rate closer to 8 than 7 out of 10. As a non-Methodist, I had no idea of Wesley's early ministry in the young American colony of Georgia, nor of the torments of youthful love that he experienced there. His family relationships, especially with Charles and Samuel, are shown in some depth, as well as the profound influence of the Moravians in bringing him to a deeper faith and understanding of the essential Christian message. I would have liked to have seen a bit more of his successor George Whitfield's work in America, especially the "revival" forever associated with him, and also more exploration of the later decades of John Wesley's life. All in all, a film of inspiration for today.
