Christians have traditionally looked on this life as a pilgrimage to the next. Indeed, the idea that we all are embarked on a journey of faith has become a cliche in contemporary homiletics, church hymns and even liturgies. But what does going on a pilgrimage mean in the context of the convergence of world religions so evident in our time? Are all religions basically the same thing in different packages? Have other religions something to teach Christians? Kenneth Woodward, longtime religion editor and senior writer for Newsweek, will explore these questions based on his professional experience of writing about world religions and his personal experience with religious leaders as diverse as Billy Graham and the Dalai Lama.
