PBS Prayer in America

Darren Grem

In the spirit of Ed and Matt's interview about Pentecostal conceptions of divinity and revelation, I thought I'd post the website for the PBS documentary Prayer in America. I believe it was run last November, but I caught it in re-runs more recently. Although less focused on a history of prayer in America than James P. Moore, Jr.'s book on the matter, the documentary offers a nicely varied set of clips about prayer's contemporary prevalence and power. Great for classroom use, especially on matters related to public religious life and lived religion.
