I just received an email update about a new movie that is due to come out soon about about William Wilberforce and John Newton. Here is the teaser:
"'Amazing Grace', a major motion picture about the work of William Wilberforce will open in theaters across the country on February 23, 2007. It is based on the life of antislavery pioneer Wilberforce and John Newton, author of the hymn, Amazing Grace, who was one of his confidantes and who inspired him to pursue a life of service to humanity.
