On Monday, July 2nd, Norm Stockwell interviewed Professor Robert Jensen about his new book, “All My Bones Shake: Seeking a Progressive Path to the Prophetic Voice. ” “Drawing on the Old and New Testaments, contemporary philosophy, common sense, personal intuition, and progressive politics, Jensen offers a full defense of his conclusion, holding its consistency up to the best of religious and secular teachings. A touchingly open memoir that is also a study of the religious debate in America, “All My Bones Shake” marks an entirely new communion: a way to look at religion as a tool with which we may create closer ties to all humanity and begin to create a just and sustainable society—to face with confidence the uncertainty of our lives. Both political and spiritual, radical and universal, public and very personal, Jensen’s warmhearted text is a passionate testament to the potential of religion to offer sanity and stability in the face of our culture’s growing turmoil.” -Soft Skull Press To read more about the book “All My Bones Shake: Seeking a Progressive Path to the Prophetic Voice:” http://www.amazon.com/All-Bones-Shake-Progressive-Prophetic/dp/1458780899 more »
