Join Christiane Amanpour on the ultimate road trip as she travels to the lands of the Bible to explore the fundamental roots of three religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam-- and the powerful stories that inspire billions. Using the Old Testament as a guidebook, "Back to the Beginning with Christiane Amanpour" peels back the layers of history and faith that inspire those stories, and considers the ways in which these form the backbone of the basic core values of the human race. Amanpour explores the stories through an extraordinary journey to the various historical sites that unite all three religions. "Back to the Beginning with Christiane Amanpour," a two-part, four-hour special, airs FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21 and FRIDAY, DECEMBER 28 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET both nights) on the ABC Television Network.
