Synopsis

“Thoughtful and absorbing” —The New York Times

“Spiritual travelogue” —Newsweek

A revealing exploration of world religions

All religions, at their core, are the same: this remarkable claim is made by Huston Smith, bestselling author and former professor of comparative religion at Syracuse University, MIT, and the University of California, Berkeley. Raised by Christian missionaries, Smith also practices yoga, embraced his daughter’s conversion to Judaism, and, for a decade, adopted the Islamic tradition of praying five times a day. He has traveled around the world, visiting ashrams and temples, synagogues and mosques, zen masters and swamis.

His book The World’s Religions has sold more than 2 ½ million copies worldwide since 1958, and is considered one of the defining treatises on the subject. In this series of conversations with renowned journalist Bill Moyers, Smith provides thoughtful insights into the world’s largest religions--Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--and how, taken at their best, they provide universal truths that unite and define the human spirit.
