The Story of God is Morgan Freeman's epic exploration and intimate reflection on God. Each episode will center on one big question about the divine: from the mystery of creation, the true power of miracles, to the promise of resurrection. These timeless and universal mysteries impact everyone from every faith. Morgan will immerse himself into religious experiences and rituals all around the world, from Jerusalem's Wailing Wall to India's Bodhi Tree and to modern megachurches in the US.  He'll become a test subject in scientific labs to examine how the frontiers of neuroscience and cosmology are intersecting the traditional domain of religion. And he'll travel with archeologists to uncover the long-lost religions of our ancestors, such as the 10,000-year-old ruins at Gobekli Tepe in Turkey. Man's relationship to God is the most important question in the history of humanity. This ambitious expedition through the ages and around the globe seeks to understand how faith has shaped our lives, no matter what our religion or belief.
