Description

How could a quiet Victorian dentist from Exeter, who changed the world of mission and helped establish a major movement, remain so unknown for so long? This DVD uses drama and interviews with leading missiologists, including George Verwer and Patrick Johnstone, to answer that question.

Anthony Norris Groves' rediscovery of the Biblical principle of trusting God alone to supply all our needs challenged the Christians of his day.

That same message is a timely challenge to the church of the 21st century, with its reliance upon man's ingenuity, rather than on God Himself.

Presented by Russell Boulter, this DVD will stir up lively discussion and encourage Christians to get back to a simpler faith and walk with God.
