Baker
& Taylor

The host of public radio's Speaking of Faith explores the role of faith in today's world, drawing on her life experiences and her in-depth conversations with such figures as Elie Wiesel, Karen Armstrong, and Thich Nhat Hanh.
As a journalist and then a diplomat, author Tippett was enthralled by the promise of political solutions to divisive issues. When politics failed tp provide worthy answers, she attended Yale Divinity School to pursue larger questions about what makes a meaningful life. In her quest for faith's illumination of life's complexities, passions, and frailties, she developed a style of discourse--a "life of conversation"--that she now shares with millions of people every week via her public radio program. Tippett's in-depth conversations with theologians, scientists, ethicists, and seekers who share their experiences, combined with her engaging style, are revolutionizing the way many think and speak of faith in their families and communities and in the larger world.--From publisher description.
