Are you at Jesus Camp?


(system) #1

I just saw Jesus Camp. Stunning!

If you enjoy:

  • thoughtful documentary filmmaking
  • brilliantly juxtaposed cinematography
  • thinking about American religion
  • understanding the political concerns of evangelical religion
  • knowing how young children mix faith and adult favor

According to a review in Salon:

"Jesus Camp" has now come under attack from the Rev. Ted Haggard, the powerful pastor of a Colorado megachurch, and head of the National Association of Evangelicals, who appears in the film. Haggard's real problem may be that he comes off like a cynical, showbizzy creep, especially compared to the profoundly committed and idealistic kids at the heart of the film. . .

For information from Christianity Today, see here.

Here is a calendar for when it releases near you. Interestingly, they have opened the film in the midwest and south first.
