On November 3, 2005 the Voice of America reported, "A new film is showing on American television. 'Three Faiths, One God' compares the practices and beliefs of the three so-called Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Many of the similarities have surprised American audiences, and critical reviews of the film have been very positive... 'What's most important is understanding and reconciliation between the three groups. That's basically the theme of the documentary,' says Gerald Krell. He is co-producer of the film, along with his friend and partner of more than 40 years, Meyer Odze... For two years Krell and Odze traveled across America, taping more than 100 hours of video while interviewing religious leaders and scholars... [This film] comes at a time when the three faiths are experiencing many tensions, but there are signs of interfaith cooperation too, and of religious leaders wanting to promote understanding rather than distrust."
