Publisher's Summary

In the best selling tradition of Healing and the Mind comes the complete audio track to the groundbreaking Public Television series, a spirited discussion of the great stories from the book of Genesis. From the creation of the world to the founding of Israel, from Adam and Eve to Joseph and his coat of many colors - for more than 2,000 years, the peoples of the world have plumbed the stories from Genesis for their religious, moral, and ethical implications. In this program, acclaimed television journalist Bill Moyers brings together some of the world's liveliest minds to discuss, debate, and discover the ageless wisdom from the Bible's first book, and what it has to say to us today.

A Living Conversation ushers listeners into a lively and accessible discussion of the manifold meanings of Genesis' stories, and engages us in a fascinating exploration of the relationship between interpreter and text. Dramatic readings from the Bible by Mandy Patinkin and Alfre Woodard are juxtaposed with the comments of more than thirty writers, theologians, artists, and thinkers, including Faye Kellerman, Mary Gordon, Samuel D. Proctor, and more - a dazzling, multi-layered chorus of voices.

    "Atheist Welcome"

    Nine hours of pure intellectual hedonism. With all due deference to Steve Hofstetter this is the cure for the Cable Guy.

    "How Many people should be talking at one time?"

    I wonder if the several people who made this (book ?) ever listened to the text. At times there are 3 or 4 people talking all at one time.
    The old expression "beat a dead dog to death" certainly applies here, as every topic is overdone until it becomes boring. Worse still, these people seem to seldom ever totally agree on any topic, with some of the views bordering on being rediculous. Save your money on this one!! Audible has better! The lowest rating allowed is one star, which in this case is much too high.
