One of many TV specials commemorating the first anniversary of the September 11th attack on America, this two-hour entry from PBS's Frontline series raises a number of provocative and sometimes uncomfortable questions about keeping one's faith in the face of unspeakable tragedy. Where was God when the planes plowed into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon? Why is Evil allowed to exist? Does religion have any relevance in today's turbulent times? Coping with these queries is an impressive array of eyewitnesses to and survivors of the disaster, family members of the victims, academics, physicians, authors, clerics, and even atheists. Most of the discussions deal with the aftermath of the tragedy rather than the event itself -- and to its credit, the program offers no quick or easy answers.
