I liked
11 April 2016 | by (No Fork) – See all my reviews

I liked the first installment of this series. Morgan Freeman's soothing and questioning voice lured me into an age-old pursuit: the big 'Q' regarding the big 'G''. MF touched on some of the bigger religion's views on an afterlife. When discussing God, the hereafter surely comes into play. Of course, this was just an intro into the whole God question and the myriad subtopics it conjures up. However, I like where it's headed and look forward to seeing more. It actually (quite refreshingly) gave my spiritual skepticism a light at the end of the tunnel to ponder, which in turn made me feel less skeptical and more spiritual. Likey.
