Amazing Grace


This movie, Amazing Grace, looks awesome. It's the true story of the events surrounding the abolition of slavery in England. It draws on the life stories of John Newton the slave trader who penned the song, "Amazing Grace", and William Wilberforce the abolitionist politician who pushed to outlaw the slave trade in England. For all the mistakes Christians have made in history, this is a story about which we should be very very proud.

What's really cool is that it doesn't end with the story. The movie is promoting a movement called "The Amazing Change" campaign which aims to eradicate slavery in the modern world. One of the many things Christians should be all over.
