a very captivating expression of a family's desire to serve God without hiding the human emotions. Wonderfully challenging.

Wonderful movie about a wonderful man

"I picked this movie up during a slow time at the Local library. I was bored, I'd watched everything else, yada, yada, yada. I wasn't expecting too much when I started watching but I was pleasantly surprised to find this *sleeper* movie (I'd never heard of it before) was so endearing and carried such a powerful message. Peter Marshall talked to God and about God as though He were Peter's best friend. The movie really brought this out. Very very inspiring. After viewing the movie, I bought the book and there is a description there of Peter's passing (after he was rushed to the hospital) that is just beautiful.Okay, a snippet. After he passed, Catherine (wife) sat beside Peter's body for a time, in the hospital room. She became aware of a presence in the room with her and it was made clear to her that Peter and someone else were there to help her through this difficult time. She said she almost didn't want to leave the room because she knew she was in the presence of divine love. The movie is great but the book is even better.Five stars for sure, and God bless Catherine for sharing her story with all the world through her prolific writings."
Peter Marshall - A Man for All Generations
Simple Truth | 02/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
""A Man Called Peter" is an excellent depiction of the true life story of Peter Marshall, an immigrant Scotsman who rose to Chaplain of the U.S. Senate before his untimely death in 1949. Marshall was a real man who served our real God. The movie is very true, generally speakly, to Catherine Marshall's book by the same title.
The part of the movie that shows Catherine Marshall's alma mater, Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia, was filmed on location. As a native of Decatur, Georgia, this movie had a huge impact on me. Especially since my mother had actually heard Peter Marshall preach and was greatly affected by his sermons.
Peter Marshall's message is ageless and inspiring. Young people who hear or read his sermons today feel as though Marshall is speaking to them just as he did to my mother's generation."
An Awesome Display of How God Works in Our Lives

"When I first popped this movie into the vcr, I expected a story of the apostle Peter. I had never heard of Peter Marshall. After being brought to tears by this movie, I had to have a copy for myself. This movie is not just the story of Peter Marshall, it is the story of how God works in all our lives if we let Him. You do not need to be a believer to watch this film, but I challenge you to not believe after watching it. This movie was produced at a time when Hollywood still put out good movies. If you want a film to show the family, that the kids can watch. I reccomend A Man Called Peter."
