Reviewed in the United States on August 17, 2015
While trying to be "inclusive" or maybe "apolitical" (I suppose) the Jerusalem segment seems to want to blur the boundaries between faith groups in Jerusalem--like we're all on the same pilgrimage! This is not done in the extreme, because some very authentic testimonies of Jews and Christians are presented, but there are other places where it appears that we're all headed the same direction when we emphatically are not. The photography is sublime! Some of the resource persons on camera are not up to the task; their approach is more like a tour guide than, say, a seminary professor (I've had some amazingly well informed tour guides, but these weren't in their class). As in any show of this type, the burden is really on the host, and Mr. Feiler may be on an epic personal pilgrimage, there are other reasons for taking "sacred journeys" than your own quest. Some go on a pilgrimage to celebrate their faith more than to seek it. The celebrators were under-represented.
