Morgan Freeman, the actor that’s played God in more movies than we can recall (props to anyone who can name them all…without cheating!), will be hosting a new show on National Geographic called ‘The Story of God’.
Through the show, Freeman will visit religious sites like the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, the Bodhi Tree in India, Mayan temples, and the Lakewood megachurch in Texas. Traveling with archeologists, he’ll examine ruins and artifacts to help tell the story of God, while also looking at areas of study like neuroscience and cosmology and how they play into religion. – DigitalTrends
This show couldn’t come at a better time. Our TV screens have been flooded with senseless reality shows like The Bachelor and Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Sure, they keep us entertained but they provide very little value. It seems like all they do is suck up all of our attention and leave little room to spare for God. That is why we are so excited about Nat Geo’s new show. TV + God makes for a winning combination in our book! But seriously, there’s just so much mystery and wonder surrounding God and the Bible and it seems like this show will open our eyes to stories, places and people we never knew existed.
“The story of God is one of the greatest mysteries and most important ideas in the world. For me, this is a personal and enduring quest to understand the divine, and I am humbled by the opportunity to take viewers along on this incredible journey.” – Morgan Freeman
We’ll definitely be tuning in! Will you?
