Many Beautiful Things tells the story of Lilias Trotter, a 19th century British painter who sacrificed artistic fame in order to serve God as a missionary in Algeria. Trotter's extraordinary gift was noticed by famous art critic, John Ruskin who believed Trotter could become one of England's greatest artists. But to Ruskin's consternation, Trotter's unfailing love for the needy and those without Christ led her to focus on ministry and in time Trotter could not escape God's undeniable calling to serve on the mission field. This remarkable story challenges Christians to ask themselves key questions such as, "What is God asking me to do with the gifts I have?" and "What would I be willing to sacrifice in order to be faithful to Christ?" Trotter's profound spiritual insights were featured in the book, A Path Through Suffering by Elisabeth Elliot. This program is recommended for anyone who desires to be encouraged and challenged in their pursuit of God. Featuring the voices of Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey) and John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones).
