John Wesley in film

Thanks to the UM Reporter blog I am now looking forward to a film biography of John Wesley. I’ve seen one before, and it may was probably this 1954 version which has the redeeming quality of at least being accurate, if not entertaining.

That’s a shame, because John’s life is interesting and full of good drama, so I’m hoping that this film will raise some interest in his life. I wish that it had been completed a few years ago, when the church was celebrating the 200th anniversary of his birth, but October is good too. Taking the church to see it would make a good church trip for All Saint’s Day.
