Bill Moyers on Faith & Reason


SAMPLE: THIS IS WHERE YOUR CUSTOMIZED MESSAGE WOULD BE INSERTED.



In a world where religion is poison to some and salvation to others, how do we live together? How do we keep the public space between reason and faith, where most of us spend our lives, from becoming a no-man's land of constant warfare between absolutes? These are the questions I ask some of the world's noted authors in my new series beginning June 23 on PBS. (Check local listings.) Why ask writers? Writers of great literature give us the kind of perspective on that no-man's land you can only get from the creative mind — a mind that because of the craft, conscience, and process of writing has grappled with religion in its complexities, it subtleties, and its extremes. They help us come to terms with the fact that in this new age, any transformative discussion must be one of reason and faith, not reason versus faith.

I invite you to watch for yourself. For a special online preview of my interviews with Salman Rushdie, Mary Gordon, Margaret Atwood, and others.
