FMTV - Many Beautiful Things

Many Beautiful Things

Runtime: 70m 23s | Release date: 2015

Many Beautiful Things tells the story of Lilias Trotter, a 19th-century British painter who sacrificed artistic fame in order to serve God as a missionary in Algeria. Trotter's extraordinary gift was noticed by a famous art critic, John Ruskin, who believed Trotter could become one of England's greatest artists. But to Ruskin's consternation, Trotter's unfailing love for the needy and those without Christ led her to focus on ministry and, in time, Trotter could not escape God's undeniable calling to serve on the mission field.

This remarkable story challenges Christians to ask themselves key questions such as, "What is God asking me to do with the gifts I have?" and "What would I be willing to sacrifice in order to be faithful to Christ?". Trotter's profound spiritual insights were featured in the book, A Path Through Suffering by Elisabeth Elliot. This film is recommended for anyone who desires to be encouraged and challenged in their pursuit of God.

Such a powerful story. Moving and challenging. Amazing to show what can be achieved when the pursuit of individual success is forsaken for the success and thriving of others. Something that can only be achieved by leaning into God and His strength. I had never heard of Lilias Trotter before watching this but I am sure I will be telling others all about her now. I have enjoyed a number of documentaries on FMTV but this one has touched me the most. Please bring more like it.

Music overpowered much of the audio portion, but what I could hear clearly, I thoroughly enjoyed.
