Becky Garrison, Roger Williams’ Little Book of Virtues, July 18-24

This week’s guest is a direct descendant of Roger Williams. Religion writer, Becky Garrison, writes about the radical commitments to freedom of conscience and equality that this 17th century religious pioneer embraced and how his virtues could inspire us.  With wit and insight she takes on contemporary religiosity and how prophetic voices mute themselves at the expense of profit and fame.  It is an important discussion of the cost of speaking truth. Pick up her e-book, Roger Williams’ Little Book of Virtues and listen to our conversation on Religion For Life.   She is also the author of Red and Blue God, Black and Blue Church: Eyewitness Accounts of How American Churches are Hijacking Jesus, Bagging the Beatitudes, and Worshipping the Almighty Dollar.
