"What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live?" Those are the two questions that form the backbone of "On Being," the award-winning public radio show hosted by Krista Tippett. The show delves into questions of meaning and faith with devout believers and atheists alike, including poets, actors, musicians, scientists and theologians. In her new book, "Becoming Wise," Tippett reflects on the lessons she has learned from her guests about family, civility, and how to be more fully present in our lives.
