Gospel Film Archive: Missions Collection - DVD – Richard and Linda D, 05/27/2015
Gospel Film Archive: Missions Collection is a fascinating look into the past, when popular media held a positive view of both Christians and Christian organizations. If you're in the Baby Boom generation, you'll enjoy this trip down Memory Lane; and if you're too young to remember how positive Christians were portrayed in secular media, prior to the 70's, you'll wish things were that way now! Enjoy!
