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. In this unique and illuminating seven-part documentary miniseries, television pundit Bill Moyers sits down with writers from a broad array of faiths and backgrounds, and speaks candidly with them about their individual searches for meaning and significance through personal faith. Subtopics include the chasm that many perceive between science and religion, the controversial ties between faith and politics, the need for freedom of expression, and much more. 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.
