May 8, 2018 – Faith & Literature: A Hopeful Vision of a Better World
Michael David Lukas, guest
Season 11, Episode 19
Can a good book change the world? On this Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, the power of story, and literature as hope. His new book tells of a time and place when the Jewish and Islamic communities were bound together by a mutuality of care and concern. The Last Watchman of Old Cairo interweaves the modern and ancient world in a story which brings insight and hope for our current age. We’ll talk with the author about both this story and also what message he hopes the world will hear. We’ll talk about all of this from the ancient stories and the great teachings of our three Abrahamic faith traditions. Our conversation with Michael David Lukas, author of The Last Watchman of Old Cairo and his vision — and ours — for the world. That’s on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
