Why not his converison back to Christian faith ?
According to belifnet artlces, they claim he came back to christian faith. Can someone double check it for me ? (Danny Boy 20:28, 23 November 2008 (UTC)) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Irishmonk (talk • contribs)
I've worked with Huston for nearly 10 years on a documentary about his life. He feels he never left his Christian roots. His explorations in other religions have just confirmed the Vedantic view that all religions have a common source (God-head) and a common goal (unifiy the soul with the source). This has not pulled him from Christinity, but reaffirmed his faith.
What about a note about his studying at a small Bible college in the Midwest, as mentioned on NPR on March 1, 2010, by Don Latin (talk about _The Harvard Psychedelic Club_? MaynardClark (talk) 16:19, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Reads akin to a clutch of old biddy Pharisees as to what constitutes the TRUTH as revealed via THE LAW. As of days of yore the blind blink their eyes and expect their babbled broadcasts to be admired and adored by the masses they believe mingle below them, awaiting the wondrous wisdom of the master class to fall downwards and envelope the huddled ones in the righteousness from above.

The "Huston Smith Award for Interfaith Education"
In 2010, during a personal visit arranged by Ms. Emily Grandstaff of his publisher, Harper Collins, Rev. Huston Smith (he was ordained by his Methodist church) gave permission verbally and in writing to Rev. Tim Miner OUnI, founding executive director of the Council of Interfaith Communities of the USA and co-founder of the Order of Universal Interfaith (OUnI), to use his name to annually award outstanding educators who teach about the world's religions in a way that promotes peace and understanding between the world's faith paths. There was only one requirement for use of Dr. Smith's name and that was the first award would go to his "heir apparent," Professor M. Darrol Bryant.
Professor M. Darrol Bryant receives the first "Huston Smith Award for Interfaith Education" on November 12, 2011, at the 10th anniversary meeting of the IGR (Interfaith Grand River) in Kitchner, Ontario Canada. Rev. Miner will present the award. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:59, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Does anyone know why he talks in such a labored way? Has he always talked this way, or is this post-stroke or something? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:20, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
