Oprah Winfrey makes headlines whenever she's in the news. For instance, the share price of Weight Watchers International more than doubled after she announced that she is buying ten percent of the company and joining its board.
Now she's back in the headlines with Belief, a miniseries that began October 18 and continues through October 24. According to Jonathan Merritt, a respected evangelical journalist, "Belief allows the message and core tenets of every religion to shine through in a way that honors them while remaining honest. Even the most exclusivist believers will find something to love in this epic spiritual series."
Leith Anderson and other evangelical leaders approve the way Belief characterizes their faith. Other leaders seem to feel the same way about their religious tradition.
Of course, Oprah's own spiritual eclecticism shines through as well. She once claimed that there are "many paths to what you call God." She has endorsed Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, and other New Age gurus. (For more on Oprah Winfrey's faith, see Janet Denison's Who's Right: Stephen Colbert or Oprah?)
