Sheffey Robert Sheffey was an American circuit-riding preacher of the nineteenth century. The film is based on the true story of this unusual servant of God, who as a young man followed his rowdy friends to a revival meeting and there found the Lord. A man of prayer, tireless service, and great compassion, “Brother Sheffey” rides through the Appalachian Mountains spreading the gospel. Although he suffers the loss of his two greatest treasures in one day, Sheffey still finds forgiveness in his heart for the person who caused his sorrow. It captures the warmth and compassion of a man whose soul was on fire for the Lord. Unusual Films’ Sheffey won a Silver Medallion at the International Film and Television Festival of New York in 1978.
“I have seen it many times, and it is just as powerful every time I see it.” “‘Sheffey’ is an unforgettable film.”
