The host of the popular weekly program on National Public Radio talks about her journey from politics back to religion—and a life of conversation. Includes excerpts from radio program. For Krista Tippett, politics was the primary arena of human action, and reporting was the way to tell a story. The granddaughter of a Southern Baptist minister, raised in a family where life revolved around church, she dismissed her religious upbringing to become a journalist and a diplomat in Berlin. Still seeking the means by which the world could be made a better place, she returned to divinity school. Questioning the limits of politics, observing that strictly reporting about religion failed to penetrate its intellectual and spiritual content, she came up with an idea for a new radio program. Speaking of Faith, the radio show, is public radio's weekly national conversation about belief, meaning, ethics, and ideas. Grappling with themes of American life, it asks how perspectives of faith might inform and illuminate our public reflection. Speaking of Faith, the audiobook, is Krista Tippett's own story of how she arrived where she is today—on a journey of discovery shared by countless others.
