How’s Your Faith?

Nov 29, 2015

TV NBC GregoryWe’re all looking, aren’t we? We’re all trying to fit the pieces of our life puzzle together so it somehow makes sense, somehow fits. This isn’t the direction to which we would normally look, but maybe the book we read next is David Gregory’s…

While David Gregory was covering the White House, he had the unusual experience of being asked by President George W. Bush, “How’s your faith?” David’s answer was just emerging. Raised by a Catholic mother and a Jewish dad, he had a strong sense of Jewish cultural and ethnic identity, but no real belief–until his marriage to a Protestant woman of strong faith inspired him to explore his spirituality for himself and his growing family.

David’s journey has taken him inside Christian mega-churches and into the heart of Orthodox Judaism. He’s gone deep into Bible study and asked tough questions of America’s most thoughtful religious leaders, including evangelical preacher Joel Osteen and Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Catholic Archbishop of New York. It has brought him back to his childhood, where belief in God might have helped him through his mother’s struggle with alcoholism, and through a difficult period of public scrutiny and his departure from NBC News, which saw his faith tested like never before.

David  approaches his faith with the curiosity and dedication you would expect from a journalist accustomed to holding politicians and Presidents accountable. But he also comes as a seeker, one just discovering why spiritual journeys are always worthwhile. (Simon and Schuster)
