Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays

This week’s giveaway is sponsored by Family Christian Movies. They are offering five prizes, each of which is a copy of the documentary film Malatya (which I reviewed here).

MalatyaThree Christians were brutally murdered on April 18, 2007 in the offices of a Christian publisher in Malatya, Turkey. The five Muslim men who killed them all carried identical notes in their pockets: “We did this for our country. They were attacking our religion.”

Instead of hatred, Christians responded with love. On national television two widowed mothers echoed Christ: “Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Muslims across the nation wondered how Christians could respond with such love.

Malatya, a feature-length documentary film, tells the story of three men willing to give up their lives to share the gospel with their friends, and the fruit that has grown up from their sacrifice.

Here is the trailer:
