What’s in it for me? Listen in on the religious reflections of a former American president.
Billions of people around the world follow religious doctrines and teachings. But even the strictest atheist has faith. Whether it’s trusted institutions, secular creeds such as human rights or simply our blind faith in everyday technologies, we all believe in something.
These blinks argue that, despite their differences, different faiths share a great deal of common ground. Indeed, the major religions have many of the same core commitments, as do religion and science.
So the real question isn’t whether Christianity or physics is better at explaining the universe, but how we use our beliefs to change the world for the better. After all, faith has long been at the forefront of struggles for justice. And that makes it a wonderful resource for those trying to tackle today’s most pressing problems.
In the following blinks, you’ll learn
- why a nuclear physicist has no problem believing in God;
- about American missionaries living under Idi Amin’s dictatorship; and
- how a young Jimmy Carter took on the Ku Klux Klan.
