November 18, 2014 – Faith & Religion: Rabbi Harold Kushner-Conquering Fear
Season 6, Episode 21
Bestselling author, Rabbi Harold Kushner will join us on Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys as we discuss faith and fear. It can have a crippling effect on human beings, it can even shut down our capacity for reasonable thought: fear! Many critics of religion argue that fear is often used by religion to coerce its adherents to behave in whatever way that particular religion requires. Fear of hell — fear of an angry God — fear of retribution by God for misbehavior. These are often primary motivators used by some religious groups to get people to act or think in a particular way. Rabbi Harold Kushner joins us to discuss the issue of fear. He’ll suggest ways that we can conquer fear and live boldly even when things seem very uncertain. Our conversation with Rabbi and author, Harold Kushner, that’s on this episode of Friends Talking Faith, listen now!
