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 mega churches 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.
