Happy New Year! Giving both our State of Belief host, Rev. Welton Gaddy, and our potential guests a little break, this week we’re sharing highlights from past shows.

We’ll rewind to a 2008 conversation with Ed Larson, author of the book A Magnificent Catastrophe: The Tumultuous Election of 1800, America’s First Presidential Campaign.

Then, another interview from that same year: Dr. Jacques Berlinerblau, author, Thumpin’ It: The Use and Abuse of the Bible in Today’s Presidential Politics.

We’ll also hear from the author of the book Freedom for the Thought that We Hate: A Biography of the First Amendment, Pulitzer Prize-winner Anthony Lewis.

From 2006, there’s a compelling segment featuring leading American Secuar thinker, author and activist Sam Harris, whose books include The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason.

And finally, Rabbi James Rudin, whose 2006 book is titled, The Baptizing of America: The Religious Right’s Plans for the Rest of Us.
