This fascinating series has broad appeal, whether you subscribe to a single belief system or, like Freeman, are a dabbler in many ideologies. It (and he) never presumes to determine what's fact and what's mere interpretation, which makes for an impressive lack of bias -- no easy task when you're dealing with subject matter as sensitive and closely cherished as people's faith. In this case, he's the ultimate student, willing to learn, eager to ask questions, and respectful of the intricacies of each religion he encounters.

As thought-provoking and meaningful as The Story of God's content is, though, it's an equally intense experience that will make you consider new viewpoints on matters of faith. It may not change your mind (or your heart), and that's not its intention, but it likely will open your eyes to cultures and beliefs that are foreign to you. It's an engrossing journey that's suitable for teens, making it excellent watch-together fare for you and yours.
