Steve speaks with professor Maeera Y Schreiber about her personal history and how that influences her work in poetry and interfaith literature. Dr. Schreiber is Associate Professor English and former Director of Religion Studies at the University Utah, where she teaches and writes about poetry, Jewish-American literature, ethnic American studies, religious studies, and interfaith relations. Her book "Holy Envy: Writing in the Jewish Christian Borderzone" is what caught our attention recently. Heather discusses the history of interfaith relations with Thomas Albert (Tal) Howard, drawn from his book "The Faiths of Others A History of Interreligious Dialogue," published by Yale UP. Dr. Howard is Professor of Humanities and History and holder of the Phyllis and Richard Duesenberg Chair in Christian Ethics. He also serves as a Senior Fellow for the Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts. He is currently working on two projects: "Modern Christian Theology: An Intellectual History" (Princeton University Press) and "Unholy Wars: Secularist Violence in Modern History."
