The Calling

Show Summary

The Calling is an original documentary series from PBS that focuses on religion, specifically the men and women who decide to dedicate their whole lives to their beliefs. Told over four hours, the series follows seven different Muslims, Catholics, Evangelical Christians, and Jews as they enter their respective seminaries and begin their training for a new life. The Calling gives viewers an inside look at the lives and day-to-day routines of young individuals as they take up their respective callings and work towards completing their training. Though their faith is strong, the journey is not always an easy one to make as pressures from both inside and outside have to be addressed. From dwindling influence to open challenges in the existence of a God, modern religious leaders have a great many issues on their plates, the same issues that these leaders-in-training must be educated on and in the long term find answers for. Though religious institutions have been around for thousands of years, rarely are they give such a detailed examination from the eyes of its newest leaders.moreless
