Listening to Faith: Krista Tippett of "Speaking of Faith"

Abstract: 
Krista Tippett explains what it is like to be a "professional listener" to others' religious inspiration and insights, her listening strategies and the "spiritual genius" that she seeks to bring to the public's attention in individuals that she interviews. Neither the extremely religious nor the extreme atheist, such persons, she notes, are normally too humble to grab the public stage. Yet they have grown wise, powerful and tender by having taken "the particular suffering of their lives into themselves and found that it need not overwhelm them."
