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.

A wonderful documentary to stumble across. What a fascinating story of friendship, love and learning between Lilias Trotter and John Ruskin . Her sensitivity for colour and art in the world around her, her love for the people she ministered to and her faith in God . Grateful for the research team and all who made Lilias and JR come to life.
