Midnight Cry DVD


An historical documentary on one of the most fascinating episodes of American religious history. In the fall of 1844, hundreds of thousands of Americans were inspired by the teachings and predictions of Baptist preacher William Miller and feared that the world would be destroyed by fire at the imminent second coming of Christ.

The nation was on the raw edge of its nerves. In large cities of the Northeast, angry mobs chased worshipers out of their churches. Theologians thundered their disapproval of the shocking doctrine from their pulpits. Newspaper editors invented scandalous stories, heaping abuse and ridicule on the faithful. In the face of such opposition, hundreds of thousands still waited for the second coming of Christ on October 22, 1844.

Valuable perspective on prophetic interpretation, and for our times as “end of the world” and “doomsday” prophets increase.

Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Cliff Robertson, this truly American story is one of the most remarkable episodes in the history of modern religion. Using original documents, stunning location footage, rich contemporary drawings and paintings, expert commentary, and moving readings from writers of the time, the viewer will find a captivating picture of the time when thousands of citizens urged a nation to prepare for the end.
