Lately I’ve been recording a great t.v. series hosted by Bill Moyers on PBS called “Faith and Reason”. On the show Moyers interviews various well-known authors regarding the issues of faith and reason. The guests vary on their perspectives but they all bring a very interesting perspective to the issue. Some of the guests include Martin Amis, Salmon Rushdie, and Mary Gordon.
I think my favorite guest so far was Mary Gordon. I think I most closely related to her perspective. She verbalized, very eloquently, many ideas that I resonated with. Here is one quote from her interview:
“Faith without doubt is just either nostalgia or a kind of addiction.”
