This program thoughtfully examines the religious beliefs and practices shared by Jews,
Christians and Muslims to illustrate how many in the Abrahamic faith
communities are dealing with historical conflicts and charts their
dedication to facilitating understanding and respect. THREE FAITHS,
ONE GOD captures a broad range of voices and ideas of ordinary people
and respected scholars in the interfaith field. The program contrasts
the religious practices of the three faiths, including the rituals of
fasting and marriage. Later, the program features a dramatic and
moving example of reconciliation as the father of murdered Wall Street
Journal reporter opens a dialogue between Muslims and Jews to create
better understanding between the two faiths. In the same spirit, a
conflict resolution workshop engages in an intensive dialogue as they attempt to dispel myths, misconceptions and stereotypes about each
others' religion.
