Friday Flicks: Faith Like Potatoes

Faith Like Potatoes

About the Movie:
Based on the novel Faith Like Potatoes, this inspiring film tells the story of Angus Buchan, a South African farmer who suffers a series of seemingly insurmountable losses, but through an unlikely friendship with his Zulu farmhand and divine interventions, discovers the key to healing himself and learning to accept others lies in his unwavering belief in the power of faith.

From me: Faith Like Potatoes is the movie based on Angus Buchan's life. It was great! I went on to watch another dvd I had, a documentary of Angus Buchan's life (which I've since realized was included on the Faith Like Potatoes DVD supposedly) There were a couple things that just really challenged me in my faith - the first, Angus really had no clue what he was doing when he first started out. He just did what he felt God was telling him to do and miracles happened and he has touched thousands of lives! Secondly, Angus said he'd never preach in a Western country again because there's no hunger for God and the sad thing is, it's so true. In The Angus Buchan Story, it showed Angus getting ready to hand Bibles out to the people and they were >this close< to tearing each other to shreds to get those Bibles. I've never felt a desperation like that. Not to read God's Word or to even hear from God. It's really made me reconsider what the heck I think is more important than getting in a knock-down, drag-out fight for God. Faith Like Potatoes is a good family movie and a discussion-starter if you've got older kids!

Disclosure: I rented this movie, I decided to post a review. All opinions are my own. I do not use affiliate links.
