God in America

Show Summary

God in America is a PBS documentary series which sets out to explain how religion, particularly Christianity, has influenced the development of culture on the North American continent, starting at Columbus and ending in modern times. Consisting of six one-hour long episodes, the series covers a variety of topics, such as how the New World caused the faith of the Old to evolve, how the notion of religious liberty came to the founders, how religion colored the Civil War, how modernization challenged old beliefs, how the post World War II era of the Cold War became one of "faith versus godless communism," and finally ends in an exploration of the challenges religion faces in today's world. The series posits that American history cannot truly be understood without examining its religious background, and "God in America" takes viewers on a journey through the United States' religious past and into its present as the most religiously diverse country in the world.
