(PRWeb) January 12, 2007 -- Newsweek Magazine and The Washington Post have collaborated to create a new online interfaith dialog "On Faith" featuring opinions from some of the nation's top evangelical leaders and other religious heads.

When I began talking about religion to people in Washington, normally a very cynical town, I was surprised at how interested they were and how much they wanted to talk about it

Launched in November 2006, "On Faith" features conversations on religion with more than 60 panelists, including Dr. Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission; prominent pastors Rick Warren, Lyle Dukes and T.D Jakes; Madeleine Albright, the first woman Secretary of State; Evangelist Luis Palau and Rabbi David Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism.

The site ( allows the panelists to post their articles while the general public interacts by posting their comments and opinions on the questions or articles presented. The panel also includes prominent Muslim, Hindu and Jewish scholars, as well as philosophers, business owners and other special guests such as former President Jimmy Carter.
