Remembering James Dunn: Looking back to “The Intersection: Where Religious Liberty and Power Meet”

This video was a joint project between American Baptist Home Mission Societies (then “National Ministries, American Baptist Churches USA”) and the Baptist Joint Committee. Filmed at The Riverside Church in New York City, production was by Ward & Associates of Washington, D.C.

In honor of the life and legacy of former BJC Executive Director Dr. James M. Dunn (1932-2015), the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty has re-released “The Intersection: Where Religious Liberty and Power Meet.” In this 1996 conversation with renowned journalist Bill Moyers, Dunn explains the importance of religious liberty in the United States and how it relates to Baptist heritage. This video can be downloaded for use in a Bible study or Sunday school class, and discussion guides are available at

The Baptist Joint Committee offers a host of helpful resources for anyone looking to discuss and celebrate religious liberty at your church. Visit our church resources page for more.
