About this product
- DescriptionAs the host of one of National Public Radio s most popular interview programs, Michael Krasny has spent decades leading conversations on every imaginable topic and discussing life s most important questions with the foremost thinkers of our time. Now he brings his wide-ranging kwledge and perceptive intelligence to a thoughtful and thought-provoking exploration of belief and lack of belief. Many books and pundits advocate for a specific God, while others adamantly declare there is God. Yet these strident viewpoints often speak right past each other, rarely convincing anyone but the already convinced. In Spiritual Envy, Krasny helps believers and nbelievers alike understand their own questions about faith and religion, about God and human responsibility. Krasny challenges each of us to look closely at faith and its power, and to examine the positive and negative aspects of religion as expressed in culture, literature, and human relationships. Personal and universal, timely and timeless, this is a deeply wise yet warmly welcoming conversation, an invitation to ask one s own questions matter how inconclusive the answers.
