Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
Narrated by Ben Kingsley, each installment in the Religions of the World series offers an in-depth investigation into the practices and theology of a major world religion. Through interviews with experts, examination of artifacts, and dramatic reenactments, the major facets of these faiths are brought to light and explicated. In this particular video, Islam, the world's fastest growing religion, is examined. The practices and beliefs of this theology are considered, as well as the effect the religion has had on the history of the Middle East.
