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 Kirsta Tippet's own story of how she arrived where she is today—on a journey of discovery shared by countless others.

    " some interesting quotes, a great poem by Rilke in the beginning, wasn't satisfying as a memoir, which i think the book was. she was "in her head" too much. i love her radio show, however. "

    " I used this for a 3 week Sunday School lesson. It was well received by my class, but I thought her writing was somewhat disjointed. She tells about her journey of faith from a Fundamentalist background to an acceptance of other world views. "

    " A terrific look at one person's journey through her faith which encompasses wonderful anecdotes as to how and why she is where she is. "

    " This is a must read for anyone grappling for meaning or faith. Tippett brings light to the ideas and conversations that matter most. I felt that she synthesized many of the conversations I've had over time with individuals at different places on the religion/spirituality spectrum. I loved this book and plan to share it with others in the future. "
