A historical documentary on one of the most fascinating episodes in American religious history. In the fall of 1844, hundreds of thousands of Americans were inspired by the teachings and predictions of Baptist preacher William Miller and feared that the world would be destroyed by fire as he predicted at the second coming of Christ on October 22, 1844. Narrated by Cliff Robertson, this program uses original documents, stunning location footage, rich contemporary drawings and paintings, expert commentary, and moving readings from writers of the time.
