Speaking of Faith

On Being (also known as Krista Tippett on Being, formerly known as Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett)[1] is a weekly public radio program about "religion, meaning, ethics, and ideas",[2] produced by American Public Media. Initially launched as a monthly broadcast in 2001 with Minnesota Public Radio, the program became a national weekly broadcast in 2003 airing on NPR stations across the United States. Operating from a neutral position, the program explores the relationship between religion and the human experience around the world.

Speaking of Faith was awarded its first "The Ecstatic Faith of Rumi" in 2007.

Tippett believes that "what most Americans want, whether they are religious or not, is for the religious voice in our public life to be more constructive—to reflect the capacity religion has to nourish lives and communities."[3]

The radio program also spawned the book Speaking of Faith — Why Religion Matters and How to Talk about It. Written by Tippett, it was published in 2007.[3]
