Product Description

Step into the unconventionall rioutous and righteous wold of punk rock evangelist and preacher's son jay bakker, where church is a smoke-filled bar, and tatoos and piercings are expressions of faith.

Amazon.com

As this Sundance documentary series makes clear, you've never met anyone quite like Jay Bakker. Son of Jim and Tammy Faye, Jay became an evangelist, but the similarities stop there. Despite a vague resemblance to his father, the heavily-tattooed former drug addict takes an alternative approach to Christianity. He and his Revolution parishioners meet in a bar rather than a church, and their head office is located in an auto-body repair shop. Directed by Jeremy Simmons (TransGeneration) and produced by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), One Punk Under God is sympathetic to its subject, but it's no propaganda piece. Jay's wife, Amanda, supports her husband, but admits she'd rather see him do something else. Jay also receives funding from a conservative foundation, even though his own politics are liberal. Then again, his business partner is a Republican. Clearly, Jay Bakker is a man of contradictions.

Aside from his ministry, which takes a hit when Jay announces his support for gay marriage, this six-part program explores his personal life. During the series, he reconnects with his father, spends time with his mother (Tammy Faye was battling stage-four cancer during filming), and moves from Atlanta to Brooklyn. (Like his parents, Jay has also written a book, Son of a Preacher Man: My Search for Grace in the Shadows.) One Punk under God is sure to make provocative viewing for Christians and non-Christians alike. Extras include 16 minutes of deleted scenes and a Bakker family photo album. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This DVD made me laugh. This DVD made me cry. Jay has a beautiful spirit. He represents some of the true fruits of the Spirit. I believe that all his labor of love is not in vain. He denied true fame to do what he believes is right. He teaches the gospel where many would have turned their backs and walked away.His pulpit is a chair in a bar. He teaches those who have been turned away for being "different",or "undesirable" for many of the mainstream churches that closes their eyes and doors to such people.

Buy this DVD and share it with all of your friends and family. I know that they will be touched. Minds will change. Hearts will open!

I was a little apprehensive about this show, but after watching it and owning the dvd, I can truly appreciate Jay Bakker and the whole bakker family a lot more. People are so quick to judge, and Jay Bakker breaks through walls and barriers that have been set up by the religious right and has given the message of hope and peace from Christianity that seems to be lacking from traditional methods. Sincerity over bashing people in the head has gone a long way through this dvd and is a worthwhile show to watch, regardless of your faith.

I can so relate w/this guy and ALL the rejection he is ongoingly dealing with seemingly through out his WHOLE life, and definately still as you can see from watching this.. But I think evevn if you can't I think ANYONE can enjoy and appreciate the realness, and heartfelt-ness of this movie. I'm not a cry but man, the stuff that he's ongoingly going through w/his dad made me tear up. And the love of his mother just touched me man.. I'm a big dude, side-burns and all. But watchin' this stuff takes you through emotions you may have laid dormant for years. I think it show be a must see.. And if another series comes out I would buy it even before watching it. I'm dying to know what's been going on since this series aired..

This is an amazing video and whether you are a conservative christian, not a christian or a radical person here to serve the lord and question everything you have been taught and you are out to change the status quo of the Christian movement, this DVD is a must see. Jay Bakker is a rebel and a prophet (even though he would never use the word prophet to describe himself). He is humble and wise and a revolutionary in this world. This is a DVD that I treasure in my collection and love.
