Same God: The Documentary

In December 2015, in response to harsh political rhetoric against Muslims in the US, Professor Larycia Hawkins (political science) donned a hijab as an act of embodied solidarity with Muslim women. "...As Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same god," she wrote on her Facebook post. Within days, Wheaton College (IL) placed her on administrative leave, and began proceedings to fire her. The resulting firestorm brought up issues of race, gender, academic freedom, religious liberty and Islamophobia...and revealed a growing divide among evangelicals. Do Muslims and Christians worship the same god? Do evangelicals themselves worship the same god? Same God is currently in development.
