Burma Bound: Story of An Activist (Episode #512)

KQED World: Mon, Sep 24, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

When Edith Mirante travelled to Thailand to study art, she found herself distracted by stories of atrocity in Burma.

Her tales come from the two travelogues she wrote about her adventures. Shirley Hoogstra hosts.

New Improved Christians (Episode #511)

KQED World: Mon, Sep 17, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

In a society where the term Christian is too often associated only with hypocrisy, judgmentalism, and anti-homosexuality, many young people of the faith are distancing themselves from religious labels. They say their focus is fighting FOR the world and its restoration - not fighting OFF the world. Gabe Lyons is founder of Q ideas.org, a learning community that mobilizes Christians to advance the common good. He discusses his research for his book The Next Christians: the Good News About the End of Christian America. Shirley Hoogstra hosts.

Christian, Evolutionist, Or Both? (Episode #509)

KQED World: Mon, Sep 3, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

Some scientific theories seem to matter a lot more to people than others. The theory of evolution has always gotten plenty of attention, especially from those who treasure the scriptural book of Genesis. Alvin Plantinga, emeriti professor from the Notre Dame philosophy department, describes some of the main controversies between theories of evolution, intelligent design, and creationism and whether Christians can reconcile some of these differences. Shirley Hoogstra hosts.
