Synopses & Reviews
An adventure into the contemporary trends that are reshaping religion and spirituality-both in established traditions and through new and evolving beliefs and practices.
Books that claim to be conversations with God sell in the millions, women are turning toward the Goddess and scientists are suggesting the biological basis of morality. The search for the Divine extends far beyond the walls of the church and synagogue. Today's believers are re-imagining God to embrace the self-help movement, the Westernization of Buddhism and the moral agenda of environmentalism. Undeterred by the sharply secular dissection of the Bible, they have unearthed fresh ways of experiencing its wisdom.
Award-winning producer and broadcaster Rachael Kohnassesses the new spirituality-its benefits as well as its cost to society.
