A Heart Set Free: The Life, Ministry, and Lyrics of Charles Wesley
The life story of Charles Wesley.
Charles Wesley broke many barriers of 1700’s England not only to become "the most gifted and indefatigable poet and hymnwriter that England has ever known," but also to give music, heart and soul to the Methodist movement that he and his brother John led.
The story of Charles Wesley is often overshadowed by that of his more famous older brother John. These founding fathers of Methodism traveled the same path, yet their lives and talents were often remarkably distinct.
From a tenuous birth to blazing field preacher, this film explores the facets of the man known as "The Sweet Bard of Methodism." Discover the poet, husband, and hymnwriter who penned "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing," and "O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing." Follow Charles as a failed missionary to America, then back home, depressed and dejected till he experiences a mighty conversion in May 1738 that kindled within him the passion to reach others with such intensity that, through his verse, we feel it today.
Shot on location in England and the United States, this feature-length documentary by T.N. Mohan, producer and director of the award-winning documentary Hanged on a Twisted Cross, brings detailed and well-researched perspective to Charles Wesley’s history through many never-before seen archival letters, manuscripts and other documents, besides interviews with leading experts from the UK and US.

Salvation purely by faith is the dramatic lesson Charles learned that dramatically changed his heart and life, even after years and years in the ministry! If you, or someone you know, struggles with knowing you are saved by faith in Christ, and by faith alone, this DVD shares a message of hope that can change your lives as well!! And no matter how old you get as a believer, it can refresh that certain joy you knew, when you were born again!!!

I learned a lot about Charles Wesley (and some I did not know about John).
