Overview

Speaking of Faith: Why Religion Matters--and How to Talk About It by Krista Tippett

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.

Some weeks ago I had the privilege of hearing Krista Tippett address a large ecumenical group in Ft. Collins First Methodist Church (CO). She was all you would want in an inspiring, motivating, and humanly speaking, a comfortable speaker, comfortable for the person listening whose traditional religious commitment was strong or not so strong. Her sharing of her own spiritual journey as it has taken her through her education, her life experiences, and her thoughts of others on their journey, was clear and compelling. Tippett speaks of faith so naturally and with such interest in her reader's own faith problems as she tells the story of her own faith journey. Many of us were spurred to adopt her book "Speaking of Faith" as our book club choice, mainly because it is both informative and earnestly provocative. What more could a book club ask for ?

I found this book to be intellectually stimulating and freeing, as Krista Tippett looks at the big picture of faith and religion, two different concepts. Her openness to all faiths and religious expressions allows the reader to examine and value his or her own belief and to appreciate that of others. Tippett brings her years of excellent interviews to bear on her ideas, as well as her own life experience which is rich.
