Resources for Interreligious Dialogue

At the Threshold - Theology On Film

Perry Schmidt- Leukel, formerly of Glasgow University and  a great friend of the Bishops' Committee, has been involved in producing a series of films on theology and important global issues. See his short film below, and learn more about the project here with links to the other films:

Theology offers a home for the vast and the intimate. No question is foreclosed. Visually immersive, poetic, and global in scale, these short films are narrative and theological portals that invite viewers into a conversation about life and its limits which is as vibrant as it is challenging. This series is produced by award-winning documentary film studio, UNTAMED, and made possible by a grant from the Templeton Religion Trust. Learn more at
