This program features: Call and Promise, in which God makes his covenant with Abraham, and A Family Affair, which describes Abraham's relationship with Sarah's servant Hagar. Joining Bill Moyers are theologian Lewis Smedes, author Bharati Mukherjee, scholar Robert Alter, law professor Azizah al-Hibri, pastor Eugene Rivers, theatrical writer and performer Elizabeth Swados, and Rabbi Burton Visotzky. Together they address topics such as what it means to be called by God, what it feels like to live in exile, the role of Sarah and her importance to the idea of faith, the issues of race and class, and how God's covenant with Abraham led to the founding of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In addition, this program includes a special video introduction by Mr. Moyers and a menu of chapters, segments derived from the programs that single out important aspects to facilitate instruction and discussion.
