Overview

Bill Moyers: Wisdom of Faith with Huston Smith

Author, philosopher, university professor, and comparative religion expert Huston Smith believes that on some fundamental level, all religions are basically the same - a conviction that prompted him to author and issue the bestselling tome The World's Religions in 1958 . As an extension of this, he argues that each of the world's major faiths - Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Confucianism - contain eternal truths that unite all of mankind. As originally screened on public television, this five-episode program delves into Smith's teachings, via a series of reflective discussions with venerable broadcast journalist Bill Moyers.

Mr. Moyers can tell Jesus He is one and the same as thousands of demi-gods of Hindu basic simplistic rational thought would lead one to understand this is RUBBISH but Satan will enjoy.
