Rated 5 out of 5 by linda Great and godly DVD. This DVD brought home to us the fact that we are lacking in preachers like Sheffey. If preachers believed in the preservation of the Scriptures in the King James Bible, we'd all be blessed for it! Psalm 12:6,7. "O LORD, thou shalt preserve them" August 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jessica We love this movie! We have loved this movie for years. "Sheffey" gives such a thrilling look at the life of circuit riding preacher Robert Sheffey. It is so exciting to see how God used powerful preaching and a dedicated life to touch so many! One of the most profound parts was near the end of the movie where old brother Sheffey remarks, "These things weren't taken from us, they were given up." He was referring to some of the ways Christianity once impacted the culture and how that influence was weakening even in his day due to the apathy of Christians. I found that line very powerful and timely. Even though that part was sobering, most of the movie is just a joyful, triumphant, adventure-filled story of God's grace and power in the life of a humble country preacher. I would highly recommend it! May 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by tpg1949 One of the greatest Gospel films ever made! I premiered "Sheffey" in Lansing, Michigan many years ago. We easily filled the large high school auditorium that was rented for the showing. (approx. 2,000). The film touches every aspect of a preacher's life and ministry; the mountain top experiences and the despair of the valley. It has been a classic for these many years and continues to bless, convict & encourage those who see it for the first time. March 5, 2013
