Item Description

 

In these three moving and thought-provoking documentaries, renowned journalist Bill Moyers explores gripping questions long pondered by scholars and commoners alike: Why does religion poison some lives but give profound purpose to others? What do different religious beliefs say about the human spirit? And how has one beloved hymn inspired so many people? Join Moyers as he sits down with noted intellectuals from a wide spectrum of beliefs to discuss their search for meaning.

The Programs:

  • On Faith & Reason—Moyers sits down with 12 noted writers and thinkers—including Margaret Atwood, Salman Rushdie, Richard Rodriguez, and Martin Amis—to discuss their search for meaning. (Approx. 394 min.)
  • The Wisdom of Faith with Huston Smith—Author of the bestseller The World’s Religions and professor of comparative religion, Huston Smith provides thoughtful insights into the world’s largest religions and universal truths. (Approx. 276 min.)
  • Amazing Grace—Moyers explores the song’s origins and enduring power, with illuminating conversations and stirring performances by Johnny Cash, Judy Collins, Jessye Norman, Marion Williams, and others. (80 min.)

In a broadcasting career spanning 40 years, journalist Bill Moyers has distinguished himself at PBS, NBC, CBS, and Newsday. His many honors include lifetime achievement Emmy® and Peabody awards.
