Editorial Reviews

GOD IN AMERICA a six-hour documentary series from AMERICAN EXPERIENCE and FRONTLINE targeted to air in fall 2010 on PBS will tell the sweeping and dramatic story of religious life in America examining more than 500 years of American religious history from the voyage of Christopher Columbus to the 2008 presidential election. GOD IN AMERICA will examine this history as it has played out in public life exploring the complex interaction between religion and democracy in the United States; the origins of the American concept of religious liberty; the dynamics of the ever-evolving American religious marketplace; and the vital role played by religious ideas and institutions in many social reform movements in the country's history.

Customer Reviews

It's hard to think about religion without blaming God for it's growing pains.
JamesWorld
I would recommend the God in America series to anyone interested in American history or to people of faith.

You can watch both "God in America" and "The Mormons" for free on the PBS website.

One of the best documentaries on religion and America I've seen. It is not a comprehensive exposé of all religions started or practiced in America (which would be impossible and overwhelming), but instead a story of how religion has shaped life and politics in America from the Puritans all the way up to Billy Graham, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. I think PBS struck the perfect balance in providing a factual introduction to many mainstream groups as well as telling a cohesive story throughout this extensive time period.

It is unfortunate that some major religions were not included (i.e., Mormonism) but understandable as PBS has put out a full-length documentary specifically on this topic. You can watch both "God in America" and "The Mormons" for free on the PBS website.

Impressed with how important Religion in Early America made our Constitutional laws and how the founding fathers wanted to create a new experiment by these laws. A new & fresh look at US History.
Also, how much the same rhetoric is repeated in the political debates whether it is 1600 or 2010!
Religion is a very big issue in Democracy!

A previous "one-star" review seemed harsh, because I'm pretty sure that this series was meant to be an enjoyable introduction to the subject at hand. As such I was very impressed. They used quality actors that many may recognize from other TV shows. And in spite of the specs I saw advertised, it's actually presented in anamorphic widescreen with 5.1 surround sound for anyone interested. If you have HDTV and an upconvert DVD player, it's amazing!

So often historical study separates the religious from the secular. But ignoring the religious convictions of a people which underlies the political forces that shapes that people will always leave great gaps in purely secular history. What is lacking in a secular approach is remedied in this American history. The political movements of the pre-revolutionary days through the moral questions that so often divide us into liberal and conservative camps have little meaning without the context of the common faith experiences that have shaped those movements. Few other nations have been influenced by religious culture as has the United States. In this series, PBS has given us the continuity of that religious experience from the earliest European settlements to the present day. A fascinating study of how faith has shaped politics in ways we seldom realize or wish to acknowledge. Very well done.

Unbelievably informative. Well-balanced. Or to sum it up briefly, WOW!!!!! Glad I watched it before we headed east to visit old colonial history sites. One of the few secular films I've seen that manages to treat both Christians and those who are not Christians with the same demeanor.

This is important to watch because it shows the benefits of our spiritual beliefs and the harm we did to Native Americans by forcing Christianity on them. In the name of God, many men abused their power and their wives, too. It must be revaluated and this younger generation can lead us to shift our course to what is good for all if we are to survive.

Well done. The reinactments tend to get in the way, but for the most it's a pretty good overview, although at times, a little thin on the information.

It seemed to start out okay, but around the midpoint, the program really strayed from my concept of God in America to other "social" concerns which I associate more with politics than with God.
