Bill Moyers Journal presents the film "Beyond Our Differences," which explores the common threads that unify the world's religious traditions. In "Beyond Our Differences" religious leaders, politicians and luminaries in their fields give voice to the positive effects of spirituality and morality, focusing on commonalities spanning all faiths. While the negative - even violent - side of religion is widely reported, director Peter Bisanz documents the hope for positive change and healing universal to so many.
