Summary
This program scrutinizes the story of Jacob grappling with the angel in God Wrestling and the story of Joseph's years in Egypt in Exile. Joining Bill Moyers are ecumenical Christian scholar Roberta Hestenes; theologians Dianne Bergant and John Kselman; Islamic scholar Seyyed Hossein Nasr; authors Avivah Gottleib Zornberg and P. K. McCary; biblical studies scholar Francisco Garcia-Treto; artist Hugh O'Donnell; Old Testament scholar Renita Weems, an ordained elder of the AME Church; and others. Together they discuss issues such as personal transformation, reconciliation, the mystery of the angels, national and spiritual exile, assimilation, coming of age, and the dilemma of beauty. In addition, this program includes a special video introduction by Mr. Moyers and a menu of chapters, segments derived from the programs that single out important aspects to facilitate instruction and discussion
