America's 50-million strong Evangelical community is convinced that the world's future is foretold in Biblical prophecy - from the Rapture to the Battle of Armageddon. This astonishing documentary explores their world - in their homes, at conferences, and on a wide-ranging tour of Israel. By interweaving Christian, Zionist, Jewish and critical perspectives along with telling archival materials, the filmmakers probe the politically powerful - and potentially explosive - alliance between Evangelical Christians and Israel...an alliance that may set the stage for what one prominent Evangelical leader calls "World War III."

“Presents Christians’ creeds in their own words yet also allows for the expression of differing opinions…This documentary provides balanced information about a very important political and religious movement and is highly recommended for all viewers.” – Kathleen Sullivan, Phoenix Public Library, via Library Journal
"Carefully avoiding what could have been cheap sensationalism, Waiting for Armageddon is an extraordinarily impressive work that manages to take a complex, in ways contradictory subject and present it in a lucid, perceptive manner that allow us to understand the phenomenon of Christian Zionism and pre-Tribulation politics." - Richard Peña, Film Society of Lincoln Center
"Alarmingly good and incendiary." - Village Voice
