A few days ago, I watched a very interesting programme about child preachers in Brazil. The programme raises lots of relevant issues relevant to the A2 course:
- Why is evangelism rising in popularity when many other religious organisations are declining?
- What roles do preachers play?
- Why are children fulfilling the role of a preacher?
I also mentioned the series I have been watching recently – Hand of God. It is being aired on Amazon Prime and is definitely worth a watch because it focuses upon charismatic authority (Max Weber), the continuing influence of religion upon many peoples’ lives, the appeal of religion for prison inmates etc. Be warned that there is some adult content.
