Circus of God

Top of page

Bathed in the light of the setting sun, a large tent stands in a field. Inside the mood reaches a fever pitch. The music builds as a preacher darts swiftly from person to person, laying a hand to their foreheads and hurling them backwards as he manifests an unseen force. Worshippers throw their hands to the sky. Many weep. Some fall to the ground, convulsing. This is Circus of God, a look inside the phenomenon of the evangelical movement.

In Circus of God, we travel with two very different preachers, meet their families and their followers and gain insights into their faith, passions and motivations. This is a first-hand glimpse into the real lives intertwined with the phenomenon of tent revivals.
