Storyline

America's 50-million strong Evangelical community is convinced that the world's future is foretold in Biblical prophecy - from the Rapture to the Battle of Armageddon. This astonishing documentary explores their world - in their homes, at conferences, and on a wide-ranging tour of Israel. By interweaving Christian, Zionist, Jewish and critical perspectives along with telling archival materials, the filmmakers probe the politically powerful - and potentially explosive - alliance between Evangelical Christians and Israel...an alliance that may set the stage for what one prominent Evangelical leader calls "World War III." Written by FRF

if you don't have these people in your family, it might come as a shock to you
28 November 2011 | by platypusrex256See all my reviews

This film doesn't try to shock you. It invites you to sit in with a church as they make their pilgrimage to The Holy Land. Creepiness ensues. The filmmakers focus on de-contextualizing ordinary attitudes from suburban American Christian culture by presenting them to a general audience, peppering the Cinema-Verite with commentary from a slightly biased semetic cast of scholars.

The criticism touches on the subject's historical ignorance and penchant for violence but focuses more on the general hubris of Christianity in America. The judgement is delivered quietly, giving the viewer a feeling of coming to his own conclusions.

Bias aside, there is a fantastic scene where the Christians are talking loudly outside the Dome Of The Rock about apocalyptic prophecy. The attendants of the holy tourist attraction apprehensively approach the offenders and beg them to please be quiet. You don't need a scholar providing commentary to lead you to any conclusions here.
