Krista Tippett is the creator and host of NPR's Speaking of Faith, a weekly program devoted to discussions about religion, ethics, meaning and ideas. Tippett's program strives to offer perspective on a national religious conversation dominated by the likes of Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. Tippett now shares with readers some of the most poignant, provocative and thoughtful revelations derived from her conversational journey in Speaking of Faith.
Loosely organized, much like a conversation itself, the book immerses readers in Tippett's musings regarding the state of modern religion, with compelling insights from philosophers, theologians, activists and scientists ranging from Karen Armstrong to Thich Nhat Hanh. In an effort to transform the way in which people talk about religion and thereby the way they think about religion Tippett encourages readers to reevaluate religious truths and explore the many facets of spirituality and essential human questions.
