I was listening to a Bill Moyers Journal podcast interview with Karen Armstrong. What a joy. It is rare that you listen to conversation that inspires you by the use of language, respect, and compassion. Watch it or listen to it.
Karen Armstrong has dedicated her life to the study of religion — both from inside the walls of a convent during her seven years as a Catholic nun — and as a author of books on the world’s faiths from Islam to Buddhism and a best-selling HISTORY OF GOD. Her examination of the commonalities of the world’s faiths has brought Karen Armstrong to her current project: the Charter for Compassion.
