Next week’s CNN special ‘God’s Warriors’ should make for some good God Blog fodder.  The three-part series, which will air Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6 p.m. Pacific Time, focuses on Christians, Jews and Muslims who have pushed religion into the public arena. Here’s what the Journal-Sentinel had to say after interviewing CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour:

It’s hard to overstate the impact religious fundamentalists have had in the Middle East, Europe and the United States, Amanpour said in an interview last month following a CNN session with critics in Los Angeles. 

“We’re talking about the (members) of these three faiths who feel that they have a direct line to God and that religion needs to be brought from the personal into the public sphere,” she said.

Amanpour is usually insightful and fair in her reporting; I enjoyed watching her “In the footsteps of bin Laden” special while vacationing last fall with my family. Hopefully, this series will be another winner.
