Host Ani will speak with long time activist, author and professor Robert Jensen.

Host Ani will speak with long time activist, author and professor Robert Jensen.

In Jensen's latest book, All My Bones Shake: Seeking a Progressive Path to the Prophetic Voice, he argues that in a world racked with political, economic, cultural, and ecological crises, there is a spiritual emptiness that encourages further alienation. 

Can religion be a tool with which we may create closer ties to all humanity and begin to create a just and sustainable society? What part can religion play to help us face with confidence the uncertainty of our lives.

Jensen's writings explore the important questions What does it mean to be human? What are our obligations to other people and the non-human world? and, How do we create meaning in a world that appears to be playing a cosmic joke on us -- a world that gives us consciousness, the capacity for complex thought, and language with which to express those thoughts, but then denies us any obvious answer to the question, “Who am I and how do I fit into the bigger picture?”
