Fresh Air: Faith, Reason and Doubtby Terry Gross
Insightful and thought-provoking conversations exploring religion-and atheism-from diverse spiritual, cultural and political perspectives, as heard on the Peabody Award-winning radio show Fresh Air with Terry Gross. One of the most popular programs on public radio, Fresh Air is carried by over 500 stations and in Europe on the World Radio Network. Each week, nearly five million listeners tune in to hear probing and reflective interviews about arts, culture and politics. This new collection features interviews with an array of guests with diverse perspectives, from evangelical to atheistic, and the many places in between: Religious scholars Bart D. Ehrman and Karen Armstrong, scientist Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion), novelist Tim LaHaye, geneticist and evangelical Christian Francis Collins, Saturday Night Live's Julia Sweeney (Letting Go of God), and many more. As in previous Fresh Air collections, Terry Gross brings out the best in her guests with a variety of compelling interviews.
This title excerpts interviews Gross conducted between 2002 and 2008 on her Peabody® Award-winning NPR show with 15 people of differing faiths on the subject of religion. Among the interviewees are religious scholar Karen Armstrong, novelist Tim LaHaye, and scientist Richard Dawkins. The audio quality is excellent-both Gross's questions and her guests' answers are clear and easy to understand. Recommended for religion collections in academic and public libraries. [Other "Fresh Air" titles available from HighBridge include Best of Stage and Screen and Writers Speak.-Ed.]
