A look at how the history and principles of Islam are intrinsically linked with the world’s two other major religions, Judaism and Christianity.

Three Faiths, One God: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, airing Monday, December 15, 2014 at 7 p.m. on WXXI World, thoughtfully compares similarities and differences in religious beliefs and practices that Islam has with Christianity and Judaism. The program illustrates how people in the Abrahamic faith communities are dealing with historical conflicts, yet remain dedicated to facilitating understanding and respect. A dramatic and moving example of reconciliation depicts the father of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl opening a dialogue between Muslims and Jews to create better understanding between the two faiths. Three Faiths, One God captures a broad range of voices and ideas of ordinary people and respected scholars in the interfaith field.
