The Lost Gods is a new DVD series from the Smithsonian about the earliest ideas about God. Filmed in 11 countries and hosted by Christy Kenneally, it explores the concepts of God as understood by the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Incas, and Celts and is a fascinating journey to help trace the way ancient people reached out to try to touch the divine.

    I am going to make sure we get a copy of this for our Church Library. I have wanted to teach a class / initiate a discussion about some fo the books about the history of religion, like The Great Transformation, The Battle for God, and Where Faith Began. This sounds like an excellent additon. Thanks for the recommendation.
