The Battle For The BibleStreaming Video - 2013
A 10-year "holy war" among Southern Baptists, the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S., is the subject of this program. The program examines how an effort to protect the Bible from the analysis of modern scholarship has escalated into a political crusade among fundamentalists to capture control of the denomination. "The stakes of this 'holy war' are not only theological," observes host Bill Moyers. "They are also political. The fundamentalist party wants to make one view of the Bible-their view-the truth. For Baptists, that's radical. For America, it's political dynamite, because how Baptists read the Bible affects their votes at the ballot box.
