Storyline

This story opens with John Bradford throwing a graduation party for his son, Jim, who has just earned a degree in engineering. John has planned to make his son a partner in his engineering firm for many years. However, Jim has decided to enter the ministry. He is hesitant to tell his father because he knows his father will be upset. After he tells his father his intentions, his father does all that he can to try to dissuade him from going. But Jim does go away to seminary. Alice, who is John's secretary, has been dating Jim for years. She continues to write him while he attends four years of seminary.

Spreading God's Love
21 September 2007 | by bubbarianSee all my reviews

This is the story of a father whose son chooses faith over the family fortune and business. The Son is a young, bright engineering graduate who now feels called to the ministry. Against his father's wishes he enrolls in the seminary. The movie reveals the passion and the sacrifice of men and women overseas serving as missionaries. It is about commitment, sacrifice, and love---a love that surpasses all human understanding.

This bit of drama that appears to be produced by a religious organization, shows you can tell a good story and get the point across with a low budget and simple script. The actors do a fine job and I almost didn't recognize Angie Dickinson. This last paragraph is mostly here because IMDb requires ten lines of text. God bless you.
