Pain, Sorrow, Suffering, Failure, Despair And Occasional Moments Of Transcendence: The Wisdom And Insights Of Karen Armstrong

Former nun Karen Armstrong writes that she “failed” at every important endeavor she undertook until she began exploring the value of religion and the idea of God not from the viewpoint of a specific doctrine, but from the position of someone baffled by her own experiences and open to the doubts and beliefs of others. She is now one of the world’s most important and renowned scholars of religion. This presentation provides an overview of some of her significant questions and insights.
