God’s Business

This striking and original series shines new light on religion around the world. For the first time, presenter John McCarthy explores religion as business, religion as powerplay.
Although Jesus advised his followers to ‘render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s’, it’s always been hard to separate God’s Business from Caesar’s Business.
Focusing on half-a-dozen worldwide movements and organisations, in India, Israel, Greece, France and Britain, John McCarthy uncovers a series of extraordinary stories and fascinating revelations.
