Oliver Cromwell Movie Night with Joe Morecraft and Bill Potter

Oliver Cromwell represented a climactic point in post-Reformation Western civilization. But few Christian heroes have been as maligned since. In this special Movie Night presentation, Christian historians and experts on the life of Oliver Cromwell, Dr. Joe Morecraft and Bill Potter, offer their review of the film “Cromwell” from 1970 starring Richard Harris and Sir Alec Guinness.

If you'd like to watch this film with a group of friends or family, you can listen to the opening discussion before seeing the movie, then pause the audio, and listen to the afterglow discussion with the attendees at the end.

Audio Run Time: 1 hour, 52 minutes

  • What the movie gets right and wrong about the history
  • What caused the English Civil Wars
