Good but could’ve been shorter. Loved the intro language to each chapter but the interviews got a bit tiresome.

I misjudged this at first blush. Just goes to show you need to go beyond first impressions sometimes.

That said the book is a little deceiving in its concept and execution. Except for one of the chapters, Tippett is not really interested in discussing science and spirituality, she's interested in science and most of all how science has challenged religion in modern thinking. Most of the scientists and artists interviewed were either agnostic or atheist, whether they admitted it in the interview or not. Therefore, the conversation really revolved around the condescending notion that we really don't know everything and therefore our little fictions around faith should be tolerated because they are useful sometimes, in terms of health, for instance, and otherwise harmless. To me this is scientists, who think they know better, talking down to the masses. Call a spade a spade for heaven's sake (pun intended).

To me quantum uncertainty principles and limitations like the speed of light don't imply wiggle room for faith in something somehow outside the physical world. [a:Polkinghorne J.

All that aside, the conversations were interesting and the science engaging. At times the thing was a little too touchy-feely for me.

Krista Tippett is the creator and host of public radio’s phenomenally popular program Speaking of Faith, a weekly conversation about religion, meaning, ethics, and ideas. As a journalist and then as a diplomat in Berlin, Tippett was enthralled by the promise of political solutions to divisive issues. When politics did not provide worthy answers, Tippett attended Yale Divinity School to pursue larger questions about what makes a meaningful life. In her quest for faith’s illumination of life’s complexities, passions, and frailties, she developed a compelling style of discourse—a “life of conversation”—that she now shares with millions of people every week. Tippett’s unique, in-depth conversations with theologians, scientists, ethicists, and seekers who share their experiences, combined with her engaging style, are revolutionizing the way many think and speak of faith in their families and communities and in the larger world.… (lisätietoja)
