Bill Moyers | The Journal: Robert Wright on the Idea of God | PBS

Duration: 53:37 (Full Program)
Program: Bill Moyers Journal #1314
Broadcast Date: Jul. 17, 2009

In his new book The Evolution of God , best-selling author Robert Wright examines how the idea of God has changed through history. Bill Moyers sits down with Wright to discuss why he thinks the notion of God — real or not — is imperative to a moral society. "Religion will be the medium by which people express their values for a long time to come, so it's important to understand what brings out the best and the worst in it," says Wright. Wright is editor-in-chief of Bloggingheads.tv , a contributing editor for The New Republic and a contributor to Time and Slate .
