Reza Alsan, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth (Classic RFL) March 19-25

Gentle Jesus, Meek and Mild” is not Reza Aslan’s Jesus.  Professor Aslan has discovered a Jesus who is a revolutionary, a zealot, and who had a mission that was political and practical.   Aslan’s book, Zealot:  The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth became a number one bestseller thanks to this attack interview on Fox News that went viral.   In this candid and in depth conversation, Dr. Aslan reveals a Jesus more like Malcom X than Martin Luther King and worth following regardless of one’s religion.

Physicist Lawrence Krauss talks with me about his new book, A Universe From Nothing:  Why There Is Something Rather Than Nothing.    The book arose from the response to this Youtube lecture that has received over a million and one half views.    He describes the universe without any recourse to “supernatural shenanigans.”   Join us for a fascinating and lively conversation about the universe as science reveals it!

Val Webb, Stepping Out With the Sacred (Classic RFL), March 5-11

Val Webb is a theologian and scientist who beautifully and thoughtfully integrates these two ways of thinking in her work.   She is the author of a number of books including In Defence of Doubt:  An Invitation to Adventure, Like Catching Water in A Net:  Human Attempts to Describe the Divine, and the book we discuss this week on Religion For Life, Stepping Out With the Sacred:  Human Attempts to Engage the Divine.  I caught up with her via skype at her home in Mudgee, New South Wales, and had a fantastic conversation about doubt, the sacred, and Life.
