5.0 out of 5 stars Long Overdue and Much Appreciated April 16, 2010
Format:DVD
This is information that most Christians need to know to be true salt and light to everyone around them. The message of Love, Compassion, Non-Judgment, Inclusiveness, and Hope is what everyone needs to hear. I recommend it for the Secular viewer, the Christian viewer, and anyone who is more interested in making this country into a nation of people who honestly care about each other regardless of their creed, race, sexual orientation, politics, or opinions. Let's allow love to create the world we all want to live in!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must See for every Church leader in the U.S. July 25, 2010
By Ziggy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bono and Campolo in the same movie... what's not to love?!? This movie is a must-watch for all Church leaders. Regardless of whether you agree with its conclusions, it will challenge you to look at ministry in a different light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Join the Conversation NOW! March 8, 2010
Format:DVD
Filmmaker Dan Merchant has unwittingly turned modern day prophet as he allows all followers of Christ (or followers of no one at all) to enter the crucial discussion (not argument) concerning "Why is the Gospel of love dividing America?" With a cutting wit and poignant insight Dan allows voices of all social, political and theological bent a turn at airing their individual perspective on all things religious. In the end, the film (and book) opens the opportunity for each one of us to join this badly needed internal and public conversation with the Grace and respect of Christ intact.
Buy 2 now, give one to a friend and let the conversation begin.

5.0 out of 5 stars BAM! February 6, 2010
Format:DVD
This was so excellent, pointing to what is most true about Christ and what it really should look like to follow Him.
I have always suspected that we, at times, have shot ourselves in the foot in "trying" to witness. I especially loved the objectivity and how much it made me laugh;)Jen

4.0 out of 5 stars A Timely Contribution, And Yet.... July 28, 2010
Format:DVD
Oh, I bet I'm gonna be criticized for being nitpicky, but here goes....This documentary is a much needed contribution to our society as a whole, let alone the Christian Church in the U.S. I use the word "timely" in my title because as it is obviously shown in the movie there are many people hurt by those of "us" that are jabbing and sparring with the nation while caught up in the passion of being "right" rather than in loving others....but that is the rub with this movie....to the extent that Christ's message of love is focused upon, the realities of the Bible regarding God's judgment or Christ Himself bringing division between family members and neighbors alike (just by virtue of His full gospel message being rejected and even intensely opposed) is shaded and gently pushed aside. Is it detrimental to do so? I think not; hence, this movie is a helpful rebuke and encouragement for Christians at large to get back to the fundamentals of service and love and grace and forgiveness.

The problem is that as I "love" and "serve" I will still sooner or later discuss and debate and vote on issues that fundamentally disagree with another's view of their sexual rights to gay marriage or their rights to increased funding for abortion....and that will anger and infuriate some or perhaps many people who want such things...who will then often in turn be so ticked off and hateful towards me for my views based in the Bible and Christ's teachings, ( I am fully aware that not all Christians agree with each other re: political issues but this would be the context for my political views nonetheless ) calling me "homophobic" or "misogynist" and so on....

2.0 out of 5 stars Misses the important questions May 12, 2013
Format:DVD
I give the filmmaker credit for his concern and sensitivity. He is bothered by religion's reduction to a bumper-sticker slogan, and is disturbed by the hypocrisy and sanctimoniousness of his co-religionists. He wants to focus more on community service, and less on church service. And he says that he wants to engage unbelievers in respectful dialog.

So he walks across the country in a jumpsuit covered with provocative religiously-oriented bumper stickers, which he uses to get people's attention and engage them. He is openly contemptuous of the Fred Phelps/Jerry Falwell brand of Christianity; he recognizes that this repels more people than it attracts. He makes a big point of showing Pope John Paul II at the Wailing Wall, asking forgiveness for the Inquisition, the Crusades, and the Catholic Church's treatment of the Jews. There are many scenes of the hungry being fed, washing the feet of the homeless, and rebuilding homes after Hurricane Katrina. The point is made - the "Sheep and the Goats" speech from Matthew 25 ("Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me") is what's important. The filmmaker befriends a man in a drag nun's habit, and later sets up a booth at a gay pride festival in Portland, Oregon, to apologize to the gays and lesbians who have been "hurt by Christians." He seems to understand that the "brand," so to speak, has been poisoned by the hellfire and brimstone preachers who preceded him.

The problem is that the hard questions are not addressed. Merchant doesn't discuss the Catholic Church covering up child molestation for decades, and the Pope's continued condemnation of homosexuality.
