10/13/11: Sweet Heaven When I Die
Thursday, Doug is joined by journalist Jeff Sharlet for a conversation about his most recent foray into the world of American religious life. Sharlet's book is a collection of 13 essays that profile people on the fringes of religion - from a devoted evangelist to a Holocaust survivor and from a congregation of urban anarchists to a banjo player. Doug talks to Sharlet about the people he encountered and about the spectrum of America's faith and doubt.
