Overview

For centuries, Christians, Muslims and Jews have been endlessly fascinated by the accounts in the book of Genesis - from the Fall of Man, to God's instruction for Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, to the chronicle of Joseph in Egypt. In this unique documentary miniseries, Moyers (himself a member of the United Church of Christ) sits down for a series of illuminating discussions, conducted with individuals from multiple faiths, about what the individual stories in Genesis mean. In these dialogues, the guests and Moyers himself impart a broad array of perspectives and interpretations. This set contains the entire ten-part, 9 1/2 hour program as originally broadcast on PBS.
