Summary
Eighty percent of Americans - four out of five - say they are Christians. Right now they are divided over a critical social, political, and theological challenge: how to live with religious diversity in an increasingly pluralistic and polarized world. Over the past twenty years, conservative fundamentalist Christians have been front and center in politics and the media - but faith, like democracy, wears many faces. At The Riverside Church in New York City, a different kind of Christian voice can be heard preaching a very different message: the speaker is the Reverend Dr. James Forbes, Jr., and his vision is one of social justice for all. This timely Bill Moyers special provides an intimate view of Dr. Forbes and The Riverside Church as it traces Riverside's theological roots as well as its history and architecture, revealing a house of worship dedicated to the idea that science, learning, and faith can comfortably coexist under the same vaulted roof with a religiously diverse congregation. "The new reality is, that nobody in today's world can be truly mature in their religion without making space for respect for all of the other religious traditions," says Dr. Forbes.
