We can't include all of Krista's interview in an hour of radio. And, this week, we could only fit one of two interviews into the program. So, we're giving you a chance to download mp3s of both conversations in their entirety. Or, listen to smaller, digestible portions of Friedmann Marquardt's interview.
About 5,000 spirituals, which are distinguished from gospel songs in part because their authors are unknown, are known to exist today. Those songs, Carter says, played a large part in shaping American music of all genres in the 20th century. In this Listening Room, you can listen to Carter's commentary on each spiritual, his in-studio performance, and the performances of other musicians' renditions of that same song.
Listen to audio clips of Krista's conversation with Chaplain Morris that didn't make it into the radio broadcast.
Listen to selected audio clips from Krista's complete unedited interview with Shane Claiborne.
Where to cut? Where to edit? We couldn't include all of Krista's public conversation with George Ellis into an hour of radio, so we're providing additional mp3s if you want to hear more. Ellis discusses at length how the kenotic ethic functions in our world and in the midst of suffering.
Jimmy Carter has taught adult Bible study at Maranatha Baptist Church for 25 years. With a congregation of just 135 members, the church hosts several hundred visitors during Carter's Sunday classes.
We've selected three clips from his audiobook, Leading a Worthy Life. Carter talks about his grandfather's life and death, the role of women in the church, and the necessity of love and equality.
