Sacred Text and StoriesStreaming Video - 2007
This program examines and analyzes the significance of the religious documents of five major religions-the Christian Bible, the Hebrew Torah, the Islamic Koran, the Hindu Vedas, and the Buddhist sutras. Martin E. Marty and Sayyid M. Syeed discuss the similarities among the texts-how the documents keep traditions alive, connect the past to the present, and preserve their religion for future generations. Other stories, such as those that document the lives and teachings of the founding fathers of the Mormon religion, are shown to play important roles in unifying believers.
