A smart take on "FAITH OF GOD"
15 October 2016 | by himanshurai-57083See all my reviews

As not a very adherent strict-practicing Hindu, my interest was to know the fundamental evolution of the concept of God along with the evolution of humanity. The series brilliantly takes into considerations the various belief system followed by various religions on the planet. It was very interesting to see the inclusion of the beliefs of natives in various episodes. The series questions various fundamental questions an educated mind can think about. Obviously the series are not for the shut minded believers and may be offensive to them at one or other point, but for a cosmopolitan human being the series really throw light on the very existence of various Human faiths. Kudos for all associated with the series.
