Gospel Film Archive: Missions Collection

Description:

The Gospel Films Archive is a multi-volume collection of rare and vintage Christian dramas and documentaries produced throughout the 20th century by independent Christian producers as well as major Hollywood studios.
This film collection documents the profoundly important pioneer work of individuals and organizations in missionary fields worldwide. The Family Missions Collection is part of the Gospel Films Archive, a multi-volume collection of rare and vintage Christian movies produced in the 20th century by independent Christian producers (including Catholic producers such as Loyola University and The Christophers Organization) as well as major Hollywood studios. These vintage movies demonstrate how the Christian message was communicated to 20th century audiences through visual media. They also provide a heartwarming nostalgic experience that fans of classic movies will love. Though they are from a bygone era, these films often tackle subjects that remain surprisingly relevant for contemporary audiences.

A Christian in Communist China — 1961 - Jan Sadlo Films / 19m — A defiant Chinese Christian pastor is discovered and horribly tortured. He escapes his captors and while in exile ponders what will become of his congregation.

Latest Reviews for Gospel Film Archive: Missions Collection

4 of 5 Stars! Gospel Film Archive: Missions Collection - DVDRichard 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!
