First came the film In God’s Name, in which ELCA Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson was profiled as one of the world’s 12 top spiritual leaders by French documentary filmmakers and brothers Jules and Gedeon Naudet. It aired on CBS Dec. 23, 2007. Now a DVD of the documentary was produced, and the ELCA offers an accompanying study guide.

Hanson, shown at his home in the Chicago area.|
