Conversations About Faith with Fred Andrle
This hour-long radio presentation, Conversations about Faith, explores several of the many dimensions of religious faith in America.
Weâ€™ll talk about the nature of faith with Marsha Sinetar, Christian contemplative and author of Ordinary People as Monks and Mystics.
Weâ€™ll find out what people mean when they say, â€œIâ€™m spiritual, but not religious,â€ with Methodist Theological School in Ohio Professor of Theology Linda Mercadante. Professor Mercadanteâ€™s extensive research into the SBNR phenomenon is forthcoming in a book from Oxford University Press.
And weâ€™ll talk with neurosurgeon Eben Alexander, M.D. In a coma for seven days, Dr. Alexander experienced what he believes was a direct, personal awareness of Godâ€™s presence in a journey to the afterlife. He is author of Proof of Heaven.
The program is hosted by Fred Andrle.
