Robert Sheffey was an American circuit riding preacher of the nineteenth century.
The film tells the true story of this unusual servant of God, who as a rowdy young man followed his friends to a revival meeting and there found the Lord. A man of prayer, tireless service, and great compassion, Brother Sheffey rides through the Appalachian Mountains spreading the gospel.
Although he suffers the loss of his two greatest treasures in one day, Sheffey still finds forgiveness in his heart for the person who caused his sorrow. The film captures the warmth and compassion of a man whose soul was on fire for the Lord.

I have read two books on Robert Sheffey, including the one the movie is based upon, and greatly admire the life he lived for the Lord. The movie does a very good job at showing his life. I also love the fact that this isn't a fictional character.
The acting from the folk from Bob Jones' is decent, and it is mostly true to the book (though it moves some of the timeline around a little bit).
If you are looking for a movie that will be a great influence on your walk with God, to encourage you to serve better, and also for a movie that is good for any age, this will do the job.
My only negative comment would be that, since it has been "digitally remastered" the audio seems unbalanced at times - though this is only comparing it to the original VHS format.
After watching this true story, you will have NO DOUBTS LEFT about a loving God who seeks your attention.
Wow -- this is the most touching film I've seen in years -- I couldn't stop crying -- while watching it; this will tug at your heart like nothing else!
And the fact that it's not fiction but all true, will make this film a life-changer for you!
This is NOT ENTERTAINMENT, but rather, something much better. This story will answer so many questions you may have about your purpose here, and the importance of your life, to your Maker!
Purchase this film without delay. Tomorrow might be too late -- life is brief. Don't you want to know the answers to the riddle of life before you die?
This will answer all your questions, once and for all! It's worth any cost to get this story told to you, since it has to do with the value of YOUR SOUL!
