buzz about the Amazing Grace movie
Had a good chat with Scott “ValueOfTheKingdom” Burness this week, and he wanted to spread the word about this Michael Medved interview with Producer Ken Wales, who’s got a new movie Amazing Grace coming soon to a theater near you and me. So all kinds of stakeholders, Christian churches, and ministries are rallying the troops to drive up the opening weekend box office.
So Scott is spreading the word about the via email to people, like this:
Brothers & Sisters! As many of you have already heard, the movie Amazing Grace (see the trailer here) opens Friday, the 23rd. This movie looks awesome– about the ending of the slave trade in the UK by evangelical William Wilberforce. John Piper wrote a book to go along with the release of the movie. <clipped>
I prefer to spread the word via the web and blog, and rather than getting the interview audio encoded into MP3, I like having the convenience of 1-click listening online. (Now, for audios of certain sermons that I consider keepers, I’d download and keep around, but for the rest, listen via web or streaming suits me fine.)
Great to hear Chris Tomlin‘s version of Amazing Grace in the movie trailer. My family got to sit in the Patriot Center’s nosebleed section 107 at last Friday’s sold-out Tomlin concert (“How Great Is Our God” tour). First time I’d heard Louie Giglio speak in person.
