      The documentary, “The God Who Wasn’t There” is about providing evidence to make a case that the historical figure of Jesus Christ never actually existed. The film is only about an hour long, but makes its case quickly without hesitation or concern about offending anyone.

      The material includes interviews with Christians as well as leaders of the Christian faith, and an examination

      • anger directed towards the church because of these experiences, but I personally do not think this hindered his ability to film and present an interesting and controversial documentary.

        I personally really enjoyed the movie.

        This may be because I have a tendency to be very anti-religion.

        I can see clearly that someone who possesses strong religious convictions, Christian or not, would probably

        find the film highly offensive.

        I would not recommend the film to people this applies to for this reason.

        I find it unlikely they would take anything positive away from it.

        Someone who identifies as an atheist or even agnostic would probably enjoy the film for its alternative perspective on religion, particularly the Christian faith and maybe even for its subtle denigration of it.
