If you think that betting at blackjack and card counting at casinos is not universally regarded as “holy” behavior, odds are you’re not alone in that assessment. But the members of the Church Team, 25 blackjack players based throughout the U.S. who have used their prayerful prowess to “beat the house” and bring in approximately $100,000 a month for their faith, might beg to differ. This film tells the story behind the team and its extra-ecumenical exploits, and examines the crises of conscience that can arise when you’re a card counting Christian.
