Summary
A self-proclaimed "freelance monotheist," Karen Armstrong is on a mission to bring compassion, the heart of religion, as she sees it, back into modern life. In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers sits down with Armstrong for a nuanced discussion of her Charter for Compassion initiative, a global call for all people-religious and non-religious alike-to apply the Golden Rule in their dealings with others. Prominent books by the TED Prize-winning religious scholar include The Bible: A Biography, Muhammad: A Prophet for Our Time, and The Battle for God.
