Overview

To be certain, one of the most admirable but difficult goals of living in a 21st Century global village involves embracing differences of religious opinion and learning to live together, harmoniously, despite those disagreements.

Guests include Salman Rushdie, Martin Amis, Sir John Houghton, Margaret Atwood and many others. This set includes the full series as originally broadcast on PBS.
