Don’t Miss PBS’s God in America

Killing the Buddha— which has quickly become my favorite religion blog– posted a preview of PBS’s God in America today.  Central Indiana folks can start watching it on WFYI at 9:00 on Monday, October 11

It could not come at a better time.  A recent  Pew Forum poll  indicate that protestants–especially those of us who fall underneath the category of white mainline protestant–need a program like this.   We badly trailed both evangelical protestants and black protestants in our ability to answer basic questions about the bible.  (atheists and agnostics were overall the most knowledgable about religion.) 

I would hate to see the results of a quiz that was about the role of religion in American history. 

We got some work to do and God in America might be a perfect place to start the conversation.
