The Fig Tree
|Angus Buchan's Ordinary People|
Angus Buchan's Ordinary People begins where Faith Like Potatoes left off. He gives a brief explanation of his own childhood and talks about the call of God on his life to become a preacher to thousands of people. Unlike some other Christian movies, you can actually feel the power of the gospel as he talks. This is a man with a strong, true faith in Jesus Christ and he doesn't water it down!
Then the movie switches to a drama telling the true stories of three men who were changed at one of Angus' crusades for men. It's like Courageous meets Faith Like Potatoes!! There's the typical teenage partier, the criminal and the middle-aged man whose life is falling apart. But the stories are honest and true and very believable. Being set in South Africa, the whole flavor of the movie was unique and filled with South African accents, culture and landscape. Plus, if you're a fan of Michael W. Smith, you're in luck; the whole movie is filled with snippets of his songs.
The film is almost 2 hours long, and just like Faith Like Potatoes and Journey to Grace, this one feels long and a is little slow at times. But the story is good and inspiring and the message of the Christ comes across extremely clear and bold. Very refreshing.
