This World - Battle of the Bishops

With the worldwide Anglican Church on the brink of an historic split, this film goes behind the scenes with the key players in the splinter movement. They are traditionalists, with old fashioned attitudes to homosexuality, and their key stronghold is Africa. With unique access, the film follows the Primate of Nigeria Peter Akinola, also known as the Hammer of God, as he expounds his robust view of Christianity in conflict with the liberal leadership in Britain and America.
