Reverend Rabbi Wolpe deals with Religion in his book, Why Faith Matters. The Reverend Dr. Fred comments on some of the concepts contained in the concept of "religion".
Faith and Doubt are keys elements in all of life and have special emphasis in religious faith. David Wolpe looks at his own life and reflects upon his movement from faith to doubt. Pastor Fred will comment on a few selected passages from this section of Rev. Rabbi Wolpe's book- Why Faith Matters.
Why Faith Matters is a featured book by the Reverend Rabbi David Wolpe. On the back of the jacket we read these words: "Rather than tense up about atheism, its defenders, and their dismissive attitude about people of faith, Wolpe answers these challenges with such kindness and thoughtfulness that even Christopher Hitchens might find his heart warmed..." For this half hour Pastor Fred will skip through one of his favorite books- a book he has featured as a favorite for the last twenty broadcasts- and he will comment on pertinent features of the book. The purpose? To entice you, dear listener, to go out and get your own copy of this wonderfully helpful book.

"The Journalist and the Rabbi: the Dual Career Stories of Stephen Fried and the late Gerald Wolpe" Dr. Arlene interviews Stephen Fried, an award-winning investigative journalist and essayist, the author of four acclaimed books: The New Rabbi, Bitter Pills: Inside the Hazardous World of Legal Drugs, Thing of Beauty: The Tragedy of Supermodel Gia, and Husbandry, and an adjunct professor at Columbia University's graduate school of journalism. A two-time winner of the National Magazine Award, the Pulitzer Prize of magazine writing, Fried has been a prolific writer of feature stories and personal essays for Vanity Fair, The Washington Post Magazine, GQ, Rolling Stone, Glamour, and Philadelphia magazine (where he also served for two years as editor-in-chief). His most recent book, Husbandry, is a collection of essays he wrote as the "Heart of a Husband" columnist at Ladies' Home Journal. His 2002 book The New Rabbi, which is in the news again since its main character Rabbi Wolpe recently died, was highly praised by the New York Times, Washington Post and Boston Globe and featured on "All Things Considered." It was chosen as one of the best books of the year by Publishers Weekly, which said, "Stephen Fried took what many would consider a mundane topic-a Jewish congregation searching for a new rabbi and turned it into a marvelous journalistic memoir that recorded his own spiritual development as well as a community's quest for leadership." It was named one of the year's top 10 books on religion and spirituality by beliefnet.com. Rabbi Gerald Wolpe who died on May 18, 2009 at the age of 81 was married to Dr. Arlene's cousin Elaine. Fried, writing about Wolpe’s death, said "American Jews lost one of our great sermonizers, one of our most fascinating and challenging pulpit leaders, and a renaissance rabbi whose dramatic life yielded several distinct acts, each with its own powerful teaching moments."
