Khaled Abou El Fadl and Harold M. Schulweis — Religion and Our World in Crisis
June 9, 2005

In this personal exchange between a Jewish rabbi and Islamic scholar, host Krista Tippett explores the integrity of religious faith and openness to the faiths of others. In a world in which religious experience is implicated in violence, two thinkers discuss how it is possible to love their own traditions and honor those of others.


This program was recorded live at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles in June 2003.
