Allyson, I couldn't agree with you more on many counts. The Heschel program has been in the works for a couple of years now. It's part of a larger biographical series funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities in which we've produced shows on Reinhold Niebuhr, Aimee Semple McPherson, Rumi, Albert Einstein, and Charles Darwin. I've recently begun reading the first of Kaplan's biographies about him and am wondering what type online treatment might be compelling and tad different than what I've seen out there. I'm taking suggestions...?

I'm not an Evangelical, but I was experiencing a certain sense of fatigue too. Fortunately, I was at the conference and able to film the conversation Krista had with Colson, Boyd, and Claiborne. Hearing three generations talk respectfully -- sometimes diametrically opposed, other times in surprising agreement -- on the same stage delivered some grist and a sense of complexity taking place within the larger community. I'm looking forward to hearing the produced produced program, and stay on the lookout for the video.
