  • Summary: This documentary takes an in-depth look at President Bush's connection with evangelical Christianity. (First Run / Icarus Films)

Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. A scrupulously balanced look at the subject outlined in the title. Packed with historical, sociological, and cultural context.
  2. Should be mandatory viewing for those interested in the dominant intersection between religion and politics.
  3. 70
    As an explanation of where we are today, the entire film makes for crucial viewing.
  4. Our turbulent political climate is so clogged with the instant hysteria demanded by the chattering class to keep its voice in shouting condition that a sedate documentary examining the long-term weather patterns is a welcome respite from the noise.
  5. 63
    Stands in stark contrast to the quickie political documentaries that have flooded into specialty venues since last year.
  6. 60
    Certainly not as incredulous or mocking as it might have been. If anything, the mood is apprehensive. But it's depressing that--Carter aside--the filmmakers failed to find even one liberal believer.

    A stale and poorly researched documentary.
