Renowned intellectuals discuss the role of religion in modern society
In a world where religion poisons some lives but gives profound purpose to others, how do we learn to live together? Join veteran journalist Bill Moyers (Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth, Bill Moyers’ Journal) as he sits down with 12 noted writers and thinkers from a wide spectrum of beliefs to discuss their search for meaning. These frank, one-on-one conversations touch on the pressing issues in our post-9/11 world: the increasing politicization of faith, the perceived gulf between science and religion, the tension between tolerance and free expression, and more. Original voices such as Margaret Atwood, Salman Rushdie, Martin Amis, Mary Gordon, and climatologist Sir John Houghton add a personal dimension as they talk openly about their most heartfelt beliefs and how those beliefs inform their lives and work.
In a broadcasting career spanning nearly 40 years, journalist Bill Moyers distinguished himself at Newsday, NBC, CBS, and PBS. His many honors include lifetime achievement Emmy® and Peabody awards.
