About The Quest
What is The Quest?
The Quest is a documentary-style miniseries produced by the University of Dallas that draws on stories from Scripture, history, and literature to explore the Christian life as a narrative of joyful courage in troubled times. Season two -- The Quest: The Way of Beauty -- explores how beauty helps us to deepen our encounter with God and experience His presence more fully.
How long is the miniseries?
There are two seasons of The Quest with 5 episodes in each season. Each episode is approximately 25 minutes long.
Who should watch it?
We recommend this series for anyone who feels discouraged or who wishes to explore more deeply the call to live out our Christian faith in today’s world. The series is particularly appropriate for those of high school age and above.
I’m worried that this series might be too complex or over my head. Is this right for me?
Yes! Although this series weaves together the wisdom of University of Dallas professors, this is not a philosophy class. It’s a visually compelling, gripping narrative that speaks as much to the heart as the mind.
