Machine Gun Preacher: Gerard Butler Preaches Virtue of Film in Movie Fanatic Q&A

by at .

Gerard Butler rose from humble beginnings in Scotland and truly landed on the public’s consciousness with starring turns in Phantom of the Opera, 300 and P.S. I Love You. He has since made quite a career for himself. Now, Butler is back on screen with his first true passion project, the true story of the Machine Gun Preacher. Machine Gun Preacher is the life of Sam Childers, a former drug addict who became a preacher, then went to Africa on a mission -- only to discover the horrors happening to children with the civil war in the Sudan. Childers was then compelled to drop everything and help.

    Really looking forward to this movie. If it's not shown in my city, I will drive to where it is shown. I read Mr. Childer's book "Another Man's War". It's written by him and it's very frank. He's a man and tells it like it is. I felt like he was just talking to me about something that happened to him. I knew then I wanted to see the movie. It's as if God took this man and took him where he needed to be (where others didn't go) and utilized all his life talents to help the children. So very glad that someone who had the courage to help went to do what he could. So glad that he had found a help mate (his wife) who was deprived of her husband for a far bigger cause but understood even though I am sure it was hard on her and family.
