Documentaries tell a story, which makes these instructive films on religion and spirituality ideal for classroom use. Consider From Jesus to Christ: The First Christians, a documentary that presents new and controversial historical evidence that challenges the familiar assumptions about the life of Jesus and the epic rise of Christianity.
Or view Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet, a film that brings to life the seventh-century prophet who was merchant, husband, father and warrior, who changed world history in 23 years, and who continues to shape the lives of more than 1.2 billion people.
Select Talmud. Tucked into this historically dense and compelling documentary about the Talmud are delightful anecdotes that enliven the story of the "hidden face of the Torah," the guide for Jewish conduct.
Engage students in conversation with the Dalai Lama.
