Watch a Free Episode of “Epic”

epic free streaming

This week marks the release of Epic: An Around-the-World Journey through Christian History, my new book and documentary project. Many have wondered how the two products relate to one another. Essentially, they are complementary, so while you can enjoy either one on its own, they go very well together. The book focuses on the objects I found and relates some of the story of how I found them. However, its dominant theme is telling the 2,000-year history of the Christian faith. The documentary focuses on the search and is a bit more of an episodic travel film.

If you would like to get a taste for the book, you can visit the Amazon page and click on the cover where it says “Look inside.” There is a lengthy excerpt there. As for the film, here is an entire episode free for the watching—episode 8, which follows me to India. Here’s the description for it: “This journey takes Tim to India to search for objects that will help tell the story of two faithful missionaries—William Carey and Amy Carmichael. Tim finds objects that help tell their stories, such as a snuff box used to collect funds for missions and a series of plaques used for encouragement in dark days.”
