Based on the NPR series of the same name, This I Believe
features 80 Americans—from the famous to the unknown—completing the thought
that begins with the book’s title. The pieces that make up the program compel
listeners to re-think not only what and how they have arrived at their own
personal beliefs, but also the extent to which they share them with others.
Featuring a star-studded list of contributors that includes
John McCain, Isabel Allende, and Colin Powell (as well as pieces from the
original 1950’s series including Helen Keller and Jackie Robinson), the
collection also contains essays by a Brooklyn lawyer, a woman who sells yellow
pages advertising in Fort Worth, TX and a man who serves on the state of Rhode
Island’s parole board. The result is a stirring, funny and always provocative
trip inside the minds and hearts of a diverse group of Americans whose beliefs,
and the incredibly varied ways in which they choose to express them, reveal the
American spirit at its best.
