MEDIA ADVISORY, July 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- “God or the Girl is an engaging real-life look at four impressive young men trying to decide whether to answer God’s call. It is also the kind of television we’re not used to seeing: a program which treats the subject of religion and faith with respect. Every Catholic will benefit from watching it, and non-Catholics will both enjoy it and learn from it.”
– Carl A. Anderson, Supreme Knight, Knights of Columbus
Don’t let the name fool you; GOD OR THE GIRL is a top-rated mini-series which originally aired on mainstream cable’s A&E Network yet faithfully portrays the reality of a subject near and dear to the hearts of Catholic men and women – the call to religious service.
GOD OR THE GIRL is a profoundly emotional reality series which chronicles the discernment process of four young men who love God with their whole heart and want to serve His church, but wrestle with what that means. Is it as a Catholic priest, a missionary or a husband and father?
The series joins the four 20-something men just weeks before they prepare to make the decision of a lifetime― whether to enroll in the seminary and become Roman Catholic priests or to pursue worldly goals such as career, marriage and family. GOD OR THE GIRL powerfully captures the tension, terror and triumph Joe, Steve, Mike and Dan face at the most important crossroads of their lives. Tenley Woodman of the Boston Herald said “Watching these men wrestle with this life-changing decision should be required viewing for critics of the church as well as the faithful.”
While the title may cause some to wonder about reverence, viewers can be assured that they will become part of a holy, faithful journey whose conclusion will define its subjects forever. Paul Jamblowski, Executive Director of the National Catholic Young Adult Ministry Association says “This show will provide a great way to engage young adults to go deeper in their search for God and service to the church. ‘God or the Girl’ is a relevant, honest look at the tough questions that our generation faces when it comes to the issue of vocations, relationships and life choices.”
Vocation directors, youth ministers and teachers will find the free downloadable resource materials invaluable for their work with young men and women. Visit www.godorthegirl.com for study guides, endorsements and promotional material and more information on the DVD.
