This provocative but balanced documentary begins by providing the historical context necessary to understand President Bush's evangelical agenda - exploring the five-decade political education of conservative Christians. Then it zeroes in on Bush himself with a religious biography - from his mid-life crisis involving excessive drinking and a failing business, to his pivotal meeting with a cross-carrying evangelist, and finally to the skillful embrace of 'born-again' imagery that helped elect him president.
Incorporating comprehensive historical detail and interviews with religious conservatives such as Jerry Falwell and Ralph Reed, as well as Bush confidants including former speechwriter David Frum, this "eye-opening" film "should be mandatory viewing for those interested in the dominant intersection between religion and politics."
