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.

Grateful to FMTV in sharing this - such a beautiful and moving story of a woman of her time who followed her heart and her calling. Astonishing and admirable. I wish I had been taught about her at school. A remarkable story and such beauty in her art. Thank you.
