Considered one of the finest films to deal with religion, it is also a touching love story. Richard Todd delivers a thoroughly winning performance as Peter Marshall, the Scottish-born minister who became Chaplain of the U.S. Senate. While still a boy, Peter wants only to go to sea. But as a young man he experiences a profound awakening which leaves him with the unwavering conviction that he has been called upon to do the Lord’s work.
He completes his religious training in the United States, where he presides over several congregations. A compelling speaker who believes religion should be fun, Marshall inspires young people to renew their interest in the church, and his ministries prosper. Eventually, he becomes pastor of the prestigious Church of the Presidents, in Washington D.C. and is asked to serve as spiritual guide for the Senate.
This film is based on a true story and what a fantastic story it is! It was so interesting to learn more about this wonderful man of God. There are funny times, yet other times that are extremely serious and we would highly recommend this one even though it’s an older film. I would be surprised if you didn’t really enjoy this film. It deals with real matters and struggles Christians go through. From beginning until the end, this one will keep you guessing unless you already know his story.
Watch it and tell me what you think! God used this man in so many ways. I want to be used for God like he was!
