When God called Arthur Blessitt to carry a twelve-foot cross from Hollywood to Washington, DC in 1969, he didn't know the journey would take 39 years, and 38,000 miles. Wayne Shepherd captures Arthur's "message of life" with an effortless narration and authenticity—from the trials of aching, blistered feet to confrontations with Hells Angels and then, moving abroad, to nations ravaged by war. Shepherd’s depiction of a gang member who accepted Christ only to be killed five weeks later is bittersweet. The production follows Arthur's coast-to-coast journey and continues through 315 nations, to journey completion in Zanzibar, Africa, in 2008. This amazing travelogue made the Guinness Book of Records in 1969, and the Millennium 2000 edition. A bonus interview with Blessitt completes the book.
