Amazing Grace movie trailer

Many of you have asked about the last clip I posted to my blog, so rather than responding to emails directly, I figured I'd just answer here.

The movie, Amazing Grace is the story of William Wilberforce, a British politician who worked his entire life to see the slave trade abolished in England. Also included in the story is part of John Newton's life, the author of the famous hymn, Amazing Grace. John Newton himself was a slave trader, before he became a Christian.

Although the movie is supposed to come out February 23, I can't seem to find a theater around my area that is showing the movie. Perhaps it will have a wider showing later.
