Efrain Rios Montt ruled Guatemala from 1982 to 1983 as its first Evangelical Christian President. During his short time in office, thousands of indigenous Mayans were killed as part of that country's civil war against guerillas and their supporters. Today, Guatemala is still trying to make sense of it all. This week we ask, what role did religion play in the conflict? And what role is religion playing today as the country tries to move forward?
