There is no Next Episode of The Story of God With Morgan Freeman planned.
Is there some sense of God that all religions share? How has the identity of God changed over the millennia? Morgan Freeman embarks on a journey from the birth of monotheism in Egypt and Israel, to India, where Hindus worship millions of gods. He travels from a Houston megachurch to New Mexico where a Navajo girl communes with her divine ancestors. And, with the help of a neuroscientist, he searches for signs of God in his brain.
Morgan Freeman traverses the globe to ask: Where did we come from, and what happened "in the beginning?" Perhaps humanity's first question remains one of its most intensely debated. Science tells us the Universe was created 13.8 billion years ago with the Big Bang. For many believers, though, it is impossible to understand who and what we are without first understanding how we got here…and who (or what) is behind it. His journey takes him from the Vatican, to the streets of Cairo, to the jungles of Guatemala.
If you believe God created the world, and God is good, then why does evil exist? To find out, Morgan Freeman comes face to face with a serial killer in a maximum-security penitentiary and witnesses an exorcism in India. In Egypt, he learns about the belief that souls were weighed for the afterlife, and in California he learns about Zoroastrianism, one of the planet's oldest faiths.
What are miracles, and what might they mean? Morgan meets a man who fell 47 stories and lived, and a man who believes he beat incurable cancer thanks to the power of prayer. In Israel, Morgan joins a Passover celebration of God's miraculous saving of the Jews. He learns how Chinese Taoist belief tells us were are all connected to the energy of the universe. And at the Bodhi Tree in India, Morgan discovers how Buddhists believe the power of miracles lies within us all.
