Great View of Man Who Brought Millions Forward
19 January 2003 | by jwhibbardSee all my reviews

Peale used persuasion and magnified the messages of Jesus. He was criticized for interpreting the messages as a way to use God instead of letting God use men. He probably lifted more souls than any other Christian in the 20th Century altho I am sure the Popes gave hope to many, the path of papal influence was more predictable and dependent on prior teachings than the energized and focussed positivism of Peale. If the numbers are correct his church in NYC increased 20 fold within a short period of time and it was due entirely to the freshness and vigor of his message and not to the time honored tradition and influence of the Church which had 1900 years lead time on Peale. Murray does a wonderful job as Peale. And the Hyland character is genius too. Well scripted and composed. Would like to know what others think of the story and what place it holds for our world today.
