We have a profile of Krista Tippett, the host of the weekly public radio conversation "Speaking of Faith," now titled "On Being". As Tippett and others note, the program might have also been called "Speaking of Life," because it explores big life questions through the personal stories of poets, scientists, writers, and sometimes a theologian or even a journalist, of all faiths.
What is the good life? Is it dinner with the family, a walk in the woods, a baseball game at the local park? More importantly, is there an ethic within the contemporary, technologically dominated culture of America that gets us to the good life? These are the questions philosopher Albert Borgmann wrestles with in his most recent book, REAL AMERICAN ETHICS: TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR COUNTRY (University of Chicago Press, 2006).
We talk with Grammy Award-winning artist Bobby McFerrin about his new album “spirityouall,” which he says reflects his Christian faith.
