About the product: Review
The John Wesley Story is based on the priest John Wesley who was the founder of the Methodist movement. 

When John Wesley was 6 he was save from his burning house miraculously. His Mother calls him "brand plucked from the burning." John's mother believes that God has saved him for a special purpose in life. As an adult man, Wesley tried to find his special meaning in life. During this time he even sets off for America to try to get Native Americans to convert to Christianity  Unfortunately for him it does not work out so well on his own. John Wesley, after many years of struggles, finally realizes he is a sinner in need of a savior. 

John tries to spread his message but it is not welcome in the churches. John then has to go against the rules and take his message outside the church walls to the needy and those who are outcasted.

What we thought of the product:
Monster really enjoyed Torchlighters: The John Wesley Story. He has watched the DVD several times and was able to learn about the history of who John Wesley was and what he did in history.  
I really liked that the message was a good, clean message. At Monsters age he has taken notice of others who help others and has talked about ways he can help others. I think this video is great for those younger children wanting to learn about John Wesley and his history. Even though we are not Methodist, I still found this video worth watching several times and very interesting to learn about John Wesley and his back story.
