Austin Faith Dialogue

Austin Faith Dialogue was a television program about interreligious dialogue among the various faiths in the Austin area. This television series aired for twenty years. Many of the topics discussed are still extremely relevant today.

The Harrison Library housed the VHS tapes for many years and added new ones after they aired. When the show ended in 2008, we were asked to be the curators of the series, at which time we decided to digitize them onto archival DVDs for preservation. Now, for the first time, they are being made available online!

Did You Know?

Image is another wonderful journal where religion and the arts intersect. "Image fosters contemporary art and writing that grapple with the mystery of being human by curating, cultivating, convening, and celebrating work that explores religious faith and spiritual questions." Inside each issue you will find poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, visual art and culture. If you are not yet acquainted with Image, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

We are fortunate enough to have access to Image both electronically* and in print. Just search for it in Seeker under the Publication Finder tab to explore it:
