Dove Review

“People of Faith” offers thought-provoking commentaries from a variety of scholars. It is a wealth of information for scholars and laymen who desire to learn more about the influence of faith in America.

Leaders and visionaries from all walks of life have influenced our history from the beginning of our nation until the present day. This six-episode series features many of these great men and women, including Harriet Beecher Stowe, Jonathan Edwards, Martin Luther King Jr., and Billy Graham.

The collection focuses on key events in history and pivotal controversies, which have been a force for change both spiritually and socially in the land. The series discusses the Abolitionist Movement, Prohibition Era, Vatican II, Civil Rights Movement and the Pro-Life Movement.

“People of Faith” is an insightful resource, which presents a well-balanced viewpoint from a wide array of scholars. It would be useful in a class room setting, as well as for personal viewing, and we are happy to approve it for all ages.
