I found this documentary incredibly intriguing--both in a historical and theological context. It was refreshing that it objectively analyzed viewpoints from all three western religions. (personally I'd have liked to have seen correlations to additional religions/belief systems noted, but clearly that would have overextended the program's duration.) I also liked the graphic effects. The images/clips were such that they were graphic enough to sufficiently emphasize the content--yet abbreviated enough that the audience would not be likely to mistakenly associate it with 'televangelical' or melodramatic religious films/series.
Lastly, Avery Brooks was a superb choice as a narrator. The quality of vocal presence he's attained as a professor and stage actor is very evident. I hope he uses this small role as a stepping stone to revive his on-screen acting career.
