"This documentary clearly shows how we pray to the same God, engage in similar rituals that express our deepest feelings, and teach the compassion of God that we humans are obligated to emulate in our daily lives. The film does not shy away from discussing the tensions between our competing religious systems. It does not try to paper over real differences. But it treats these in a non-polemical way that encourages real consideration of how the great monotheistic religions have interrelated with one another over centuries and millennia. It explores important contemporary topics such as interfaith dialogue and even interfaith marriage, including a counseling group for interfaith couples. We have much to learn from one another, and we have a long way to go before we can truly understand one another, but this documentary moves us forward on this critical journey."
