Breaking Glass Pictures to Release Satirical Documentary ‘Selling God’ April 26

Breaking Glass Pictures will release Carl Christman’s documentary Selling God on April 26 (retail $19.99). The documentary satirizes the rise of evangelical Christianity as a money-making force in pop culture.

What is the price of a soul? At a time when televangelists can fill a stadium at the same rate as a rock star and a theme park can sell tickets to the Holy Land, organized religion has in many ways put a price tag on salvation.

Selling God is a fascinating and always amusing survey of evangelical Christianity – from Biblical times to the rise of megachurches to the post-9/11 culture wars. Combining historical insight with irreverent humor, director Carl Christman explores the many absurdities that arise when pop culture meets religious doctrine. Featuring interviews with Dr. Noam Chomsky and a host of other scholars and religious leaders, this satirical documentary shows that in many modern churches, every prayer is accounted for — and every penny, too.
