Here’s the blurb:
HOW THE CHURCH IS BETTER + WORSE THAN YOU EVER IMAGINED
Christian history is full of violence, corruption, and oppression.
So does religion poison everything?
For the Love of God is a documentary that confronts the worst that Christians have done, and traces the origins of Western values like human rights, charity, and non-violence back to the influence of Jesus.
This is not the history we think we know.
Join John Dickson, Justine Toh, and Simon Smart on location around the globe and in conversation with leading scholars as they weigh up the good, the bad, the ugly - and the unexpected - when it comes to the impact Christianity has had on the world we live in.
