Summary

An intimate, thought-provoking, and original appraisal of the meaning of religion in our time— from the creator and host of public radio’s Speaking of Faith Krista Tippett, widely becoming known as the Bill Moyers of radio, is one of the country’s most intelligent and insightful commentators on religion, ethics, and the human spirit. With this book, she draws on her own life story and her intimate conversations with both ordinary and famous figures, including Elie Wiesel, Karen Armstrong, and Thich Nhat Hanh, to explore complex subjects like science, love, virtue, and violence within the context of spirituality and everyday life. Her way of speaking about the mysteries of life—and of listening with care to those who endeavor to understand those mysteries—is nothing short of revolutionary.

Author Biography
