Our People: The Story of William and Catherine Booth -- This is the story of how one couple took God’s love to the poor. Walking the poverty-stricken streets of Whitechapel late one night in the summer of 1865, William Booth observed neglected children, drunken women, unemployed men, and prostitutes plying their trade. That night he decided, "These will be our people."
What followed makes an enthralling story of spiritual passion, courage, and faith leading to the birth of The Salvation Army. Young people, often as young as 18, opened the Army’s evangelistic work in mining towns or even new nations and the Army expanded globally. The Army’s social work was born, compelled by love, reaching out to prisoners and downtrodden. Teaming up with journalist WT Stead, the Army tackled the sexual trafficking business that entrapped hundreds of young girls.
This DVD features 11 historians and storytellers, voice artists, period music, over 500 images, rare archival footage, and recordings from two Booth grandchildren.

Robber of the Cruel Streets: George Müller -- George Müller (1805-1898) was a German playboy who found Christ and gave his life to serve Christ unreservedly. His mission was to rescue orphans from the wretched street life that enslaved so many children in England during the time of Charles Dickens and Oliver Twist. Müller did rescue, care for, feed, and educate such children by the thousands. The costs were enormous for such a great work. Yet, amazingly, he never asked anyone for money. Instead he prayed, and his children never missed a meal.
This docu-drama presents his life story and shows how God answered prayer and met their needs. It is a story that raises foundational questions regarding faith and finances. Also included are two special documentaries on Müller and some of the lives affected by his work.

Spurgeon and brings the “people’s preacher” to life as it follows his trials and triumphs with historical accuracy.
