Jesus Camp

March 4, 2007

I finally watched the Academy Award nominated documentary Jesus Camp a couple weeks ago. Aside from the fact that the film was up for an Oscar, I was interested in it because I’d heard that a couple of the children featured are homeschooled. Overall, the film was a touch overlong and doesn’t say much about homeschooling, but it does give some — I thought respectful — insight into the lives and beliefs of some conservative Protestants. It didn’t win the Oscar, but I thought it was well worth watching. Consider it recommended.
