Summary
When religion reporter Falsani climbed aboard Bono's tour bus, it was to interview the rock star about AIDS awareness. Instead, they plunged into a lively discussion about faith. "This is a defining moment for us," Bono said. "For the culture we live in." Spirituality clearly now plays a key role in the United States, but faith is a more complex issue than snapshots of the country convey. This may be a nation of believers, but not of one belief--of many. To shape a candid picture of modern faith, Falsani sat down with an array of people who shape our collective consciousness. She's talked about Jesus with Anne Rice; explored "Playboy theology" with Hugh Hefner; discussed evil with crusading attorney Barry Scheck, and heaven with Senator Barack Obama. The resulting interviews offer a fresh, occasionally controversial, and always illuminating look at the beliefs that shape our lives.--From publisher description
