This is an amazing one of a kind documentary that probably could only have been made by Werner Herzog. Herzog isn’t interested in showing...

The film features robust exchanges with former Secretary of State for...

Banned from the Bible

When Jesus was a boy, did he kill another child? Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute — or an apostle? Did Cain commit incest? Will there be an apocalypse or is this God’s trick to scare us? The answers to these questions aren’t found in the Bible as we know it, but they exist in scriptures banned when powerful leaders deemed them unacceptable for reasons both political and religious. Banned From The Bible reveals some of these alternative tales and examines why they were “too hot for...
