Searching for God in America


This program is part of a PBS series that offers an interfaith look at spirituality and religion in America through interviews with some influential leaders in the field, from the Dalai Lama to Father Thomas Keating. In conversations with host Hugh Hewitt, the participants share their thoughts and experiences that marked turning points in their faith. This episode presents Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of the best-selling book {-When Bad Things Happen to Good People}. Rabbi Kushner was moved to consider this enigmatic point, which tested his own faith, when his son was diagnosed with a fatal disease. Kushner’s reaffirmation of faith has served as an inspiration for many facing the same issue. – NY Times
