My “Future of Faith” series continues with a conversation with Daniel Dennett. He is the Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University. He along with Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and the late Christopher Hitchens are seen as prominent voices for The New Atheism. He is the author Breaking the Spell: Religion As A Natural Phenomenon. Dennett and colleague, Linda LaScola, published an article that has received a great deal of attention, Preachers Who Are Not Believers. He was awarded the 2012 Erasmus Prize for his work in communicating science to the public and has appeared on numerous television and radio programs including TED (Responding to Rick Warren, Dangerous Memes, The Illusion of Consciousness, and Cute, Sexy, Sweet, Funny). He joined me on Religion For Life to discuss possible futures for religion. This is part two of a two-part conversation.

Jerry DeWitt, Hope After Faith and Recovering From Religion

Do you know what your minister believes?  You might not.  Jerry DeWitt is the author of the upcoming, Hope After Faith: An Ex-Pastor’s Journey from Belief to Atheism. He is the executive director of Recovering From Religion, and “the first graduate” of The Clergy Project.   His story has been written up in the New York Times and he speaks about his journey at a number of conferences such as Reason in the Rock 2012.    I caught up with Jerry on Religion For Life to discuss what it means to graduate from faith.   We are pulling back the curtain.  Join me for this candid conversation.  It is part of my future of faith series.
