The Search for God
This episode of "Global Spirit" explores the human needs that the concept of “God” addresses, as well as the various forms, names and expressions for God. Drawing from ancient and contemporary Talmudic, Christian and Islamic concepts of God, and extending to the atheistic renouncement of God as a mere creation of humans afraid of the finality of death, this episode probes the timeless human “yearning to know God,” and will illuminate some of the most compelling perspectives and practices, on the concept and reality of God.
Listen to philosopher and author Jacob Needleman (view an excerpt of his interview above), and Sufi teacher Pir Zia Inayat Khan as they share share their unique insights on the concept and the experience of “God.” In addition to their engaging studio conversation, watch unique original footage from a recent spiritual retreat led by Pir Zia, along with a discussion of God by philosophy group led by Jacob Needleman. With both these groups, the concept of God is shared, explored and even felt, by some participants.
The series is a co-production of Stephen Olsson, CEM Productions and Link Media.
