FROM IMDB.com: Noted theologian Dr. Norris J.
Chumley teams up with historian John A. McGuckin
to explore early monastic Christian life, but
make an incredible discovery about an ancient
prayer that puts mankind in direct contact with
God. For nearly a decade, McGuckin and Dr.
Chumley traveled the globe to speak with
religious leaders about the 13 holy sites where
Christianity originated. Though the sacred sites
they visited in such places as Egypt, Mount
Sinai, Eastern Europe, and Russia opened their
eyes to aspects of Christianity long forgotten by
the mainstream church, it was the repeated
discussion of an ancient, divine prayer that
proved most compelling to the two seasoned
adventurers. Dubbed the Jesus Prayer by the
faithful, the chant is said to establish a
tangible connection between mankind and the
creator. Now, for the first time in modern
history, this secret is finally revealed to the
Western World. - Jason Buchanan, Rovi
