‘David Brainerd: Missionary to the American Indians’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
David Brainerd: Missionary to the American Indians – One of the most influential and yet little known figures of eighteenth-century American evangelicalism. Filmed at historical locations throughout the northeastern U.S., David Brainerd: Missionary to the American Indians tells the story of the visionary eighteenth-century missionary whose efforts led to spiritual revival amongst native tribes and inspired generations of Christian leaders to follow in his footsteps.
Great Musical Score & Cinematography in this documentary.
Here are a few highlights from this one:
- David Brainerd is known because of 2 important factors – he kept a diary of his life and Jonathan Edwards, a great figure in the Great Awakening, looked after Brainerd in his final days while suffering from tuberculosis.
- Interesting learning about the Great Awakening Movement.
- How much disappointment he suffered along the way, as well as some great moments.
- It was heartbreaking how he had to separate from the indians due to his sickness. (Some moments he described reminded me of what Paul described in some of his writings.
This was an interesting and informative documentary.
