When a professor at an Evangelical Christian University decided to wear a hijab in solidarity with Muslim women, the world took notice. Some hailed her as a hero. Others labeled her a heretic. Same God is a timely and thought-provoking documentary that follows Wheaton College professor, Dr. Larycia Hawkins, from a December 2015 Facebook post to months of headlines in the NY Times, Time magazine, and Fox News. Dr. Hawkins’ Facebook post sparked intense debate by claiming that “Muslims and Christians worship the same god.” As a result, she was harassed, received death threats, and lost her tenured position at Wheaton College.
Same God is an exploration of faith, Islamophobia, academic freedom, and the growing split among conservative and progressive Evangelicals—all while revealing the inspiring story of a woman who risked everything to embrace what unites rather than divides us.
"An incredibly important film for all faiths."
"Same God contrasts the love of the majority with the intolerance of a powerful few."
"Brilliant. The most important film I've ever seen on religion in America."
