The Best TV Shows With Religious Themes

Voting Rules
Vote up the best recent shows on television in that feature religious themes that are not evangelical or reality shows.

Whether you are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or anything else, you will be pleased to see there are plenty of television shows with religious themes. Religion is a critical component of many people's lives, and numerous shows dive into various aspects of people's beliefs. 

Some shows, such as God Friended Me and Joan of Arcadia depict religion in a positive light where a young man follows God's will and makes a positive impact on people's lives. Other shows, such as The Young Pope, take a more critical approach. Many Catholics rejected the show based on its perceived anti-Catholic messages. Both of these shows and everything in between are capable of making people truly think about what they believe in. 

There have been plenty of television series with religious themes over the last few decades. Some of these shows have been off the air for decades, while others are airing new episodes right now. Either way, you and your family can find them and enjoy the teachings together. 

Vote up the shows about religous themes you think are the best to let your fellow readers know which religious series they should check out.
