Bowling for Columbine did it to the gun culture.
Super Size Me did it to fast food.
Now The God Who Wasn't There does it to religion.
The movie that has been astounding audiences in theaters around the world is now available on a high-quality, feature-packed DVD. Own the taboo-shattering documentary that Newsweek says "irreverently lays out the case that Jesus Christ never existed."
In this critically acclaimed film, you will discover:
• The early founders of Christianity seem wholly unaware of the idea of a human Jesus ?
• The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults ?
• Contemporary Christians are largely ignorant of the origins of their religion ?
• Fundamentalism is as strong today as it ever has been, with an alarming 44% of Americans believing that Jesus will return to earth in their lifetimes
From exposing the hidden history of Christianity to lampooning the bloody excesses of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ (which caused Gibson to attempt legal action against the documentary), The God Who Wasn't There pulls no punches.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker (and former Christian) Brian Flemming, The God Who Wasn't There includes stimulating interviews with:
• Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith and Letter to a Christian Nation ?
• Robert M. Price, Jesus Seminar fellow and author of The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man ?
• Alan Dundes, Professor of Folklore at the University of California at Berkeley ?
• Richard Carrier, historian and author of Sense and Goodness Without God ?
• Barbara & David P. Mikkelson, authors of the Urban Legends Reference Pages at snopes.com ?
• And many others
Dazzling motion graphics and a driving soundtrack propel this uncompromising film that the Los Angeles Times calls "provocative - to put it mildly."
