9780143113188: Speaking of Faith: Why Religion Matters--And How to Talk about It

A thought-provoking, original appraisal of the meaning of religion by the host of public radio's On Being
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.

Review:

In a day where religionor, rather arguments over religiondivide us into ever more entrenched and frustrated camps, Krista Tippett is exactly the measured, balanced commentator we need.
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love"
Tippetts prose is lyrical and profound; her arguments should move the secularist and the dogmatist alike to a new vision of peace.
Andrew Solomon, author of "The Noonday Demon"
