Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali-born woman who later settled in the Netherlands and was elected to the Dutch Parliament. Her latest book is Nomad: From Islam to America, A Personal Journey through the Clash of Civilizations and argues that fundamentalist Islam poses a serious threat to the West. Hirsi Ali tells Anne Strainchamps that her fierce criticism of religion grows out of her own shattering personal experience.

Next, Philip Pullman is one of England's most famous atheists. Author of the best-selling fantasy novels The Amber Spyglass and The Golden Compass, Pullman's latest novel tackles the story of Jesus. Pullman talks with Steve Paulson about The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ and the role supernatural miracles play in his life.

Then, sociologist Phil Zuckerman talks with Jim Fleming about his book Society Without God: What the Least Religious Nations Can Tell Us About Contentment. Zuckerman spent a year in Scandinavia and found that most Danes and Swedes he spoke with are happy to get along without religion.

After that, Rhoda Janzen talks with Anne Strainchamps about the life experiences behind her successful book Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home.

And finally, Tony Dushane talks with Steve Paulson about his novel based on his childhood as a Jehovah's Witness. The book is called Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk. [Broadcast Date: Augst 27, 2010]
