The Miller Prediction presents a mystery of vital importance to every human being. It presents compelling evidence to pull the viewer into this life changing mystery, and then allows them to answer the questions for themselves.
Enjoyable film. I had seen the trailer, so was anxiously awaiting an opportunity to see the whole film. Small budget, reminds me of other films I have seen, often put out by various churches and religious groups. As to the claim of 2nd most widespread -- this refers to the number of countries and territories the Baha'i Faith is in, not the number of members. As to number of members, Christianity & Islam are numbers 1 & 2. Christianity is the most widespread (most countries).
The pace felt slow, but the film was over before I knew it-- would have liked a longer film. Yes, it refers to several Christian prophecies, but there are many more prophecies and explanations that were not included -- probably because this was meant to entertain, not bury the viewer in proof texts. I will probably watch it again & share with friends.
Now, for a big budget film on Baha'i history, maybe someone could turn "The Persian" by Kathleen Hite Babb into a movie?
Although I would appreciate more details, it does an excellent job of relating millerism to the Baha'i faith. Details of the prophecies and ideology behind the Baha'i faith can be found at bahai.us and bahai.org
I have studied this subject and the history of Millerites and Seventh Day Advantists. This topic lends itself beautifully to a scholarly documentary, not just on the Millerites but other groups of various faiths who were eagerly expecting a momentous occurrence at around the same time. I hope that will be made someday for all our benefit.
low budget film which follows up on what Baha'is believe are some of the real events that happended after William Miller suffered the "Great Dissappointment". The film is short but very intertaining and gives some basic facts of the Baha'i Faith. I enjoyed it.
I was a little jolted by the juxtaposition of the wild west scene and the pilgrims to Akka, until I read a passage about Haji Muhammad riding his horse and shooting his gun. Though there was more violence than I expected, it seems that these were violent times. I enjoyed hearing of all the Miller predictions foretelling the return of Christ, which were fulfilled by Baha'u'llah. A good first start on this fascinating subject!
