On the next State of Belief Radio – bloodshed in Egypt. Religious scholar and author Reza Aslan (pictured) will explain what’s happening – and what’s likely to happen next. Dr. Aslan will be back with us next week to delve into his exciting new book, Zealot: the Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, which is coming out July 16th.
We’ll also hear from Dr. Hal Taussig. His provocatively-titled and meticulously-researched new book is A New New Testament: A Bible for the 21st Century Combining Traditional and Newly Discovered Texts.
And two Unitarian Universalist pastors who have joined together in a call for a recommitment to shared struggle: Justice is Justice. The Rev. Rosemary Bray McNatt is Senior Minister of the Fourth Universalist Society in New York City. The Rev. Meg Riley is Senior Minister of the Church of the Larger Fellowship, a Unitarian congregation without walls.
That’s all coming up this weekend on State of Belief! Here’s how to listen.
