I’d highly recommend watching it if you ever have four hours to spare. It's actually worth it.
A few things I was struck by:
This was not a documentary about the differences between the various faiths. It does however focus almost exclusively on the idea of a “calling” and how each of these individuals relates to the calling on their lives. I was a bit disappointed they didn’t get into some of the differences between the faiths, but I think that would have distracted from the power of the documentary if they had done so.
The Catholic Church was portrayed in a more positive light than what I’ve become accustomed to in the media. It was refreshing to see.
I’m not entirely sure why, but I came away thinking about religious traditions and whether the Evangelical/Protestant church has thrown out to many.
