Call and PromiseStreaming Video - 2013
This program examines the story in which God makes his covenant with Abraham. "If it's hard not to be chosen, it's harder to be chosen," observes Azizah al-Hibri, professor of law at the Univ. of Richmond. The program explores what it means to be "called" by God, what it feels like to be in exile looking for a homeland, and how the covenant led to the founding of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Featured in the program are scholar Robert Alter, author Bharati Mukherjee, pastor Eugene Rivers, theologian Lewis Smedes, theatrical writer and performer Elizabeth Swados, and Rabbi Burton Visotzky.
