Description

Albert Schweitzer — For generations the name Albert Schweitzer has been synonymous with hands-on compassion and the power of Christ-like sacrifice. Now director Gavin Miller presents a landmark drama about the legendary medical missionary and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. The year is 1949, the Cold War has begun and a climate of fear pervades. Christian medical missionary and theologian Albert Schweitzer (Jeroen Krabbé) is regarded as one of the world’s most eminent humanitarians due to his life saving work in Africa. But when Schweitzer takes a controversial political stand, powerful adversaries launch a smear campaign designed to discredit and silence him. His enemies sabotage his medical clinic endangering the patients and threatening to put an end to the work. Co-starring Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress Barbara Hershey as Helene Schweitzer.

Dr. David Livingstone — In the early part of the nineteenth century, Africa was called the dark continent. One man’s passion for Christ would change that view. Dr. David Livingstone took the Gospel to Africa in word and deed. As a medical doctor he treated the sick, earning him the necessary trust and respect to teach the love of Christ which many Africans freely embraced. Then Livingstone turned his attention to exploration, seeing this work as much a spiritual calling as traditional missionary work. Facing danger and sickness he forged routes deep into the African interior, sparking the imagination of many who would follow. Hailed as one of the greatest European explorers of all time, Livingstone’s commitment and eventual martyrdom helped bring an end to the slave trade and opened a continent to the Gospel. Discover the story of David Livingstone and see how faith and sacrifice can change the world.

Andrew Murray — Andrew Murray (1828-1917) was a South African minister, writer and revivalist. For more than six decades he served with the Dutch Reformed Church of South Africa, preaching, teaching and writing more than 200 books and pamphlets. Murray became an international figure through his writing and today many of his works are considered devotional classics. These include; Abide in Christ, Absolute Surrender and, Waiting on God. Murray believed in the necessity of total surrender to God and the importance of a deep and personal devotional life. Murray also believed that “missions is the chief end of the church.” He became a key figure in the 1860 revival that spread across South Africa’s Cape Colony and he established The Missionary Institute, a school that trained and sent missionaries into the interior of Africa. Shot on location in South Africa, this documentary tells the story of Andrew Murray’s life and mission and provides insight into his provocative teaching.
