Becoming Wise: An Inquiry Into the Mystery and Art of Living by Krista Tippett

Becoming Wise, like it’s title suggests is a book about wisdom. How we find it, what it looks like and how to foster wisdom in our own lives and in our relationships.

It is a book about words, and meaning and how words can either limit or enlarge our understanding of reality.

It is a book about conversations and story and how they can expand and support our understandings of each other and the world around us.

It is an exploration on how to bridge the polarity that distances us from others.

It is a book that helps us look at the words  Faith, Hope and Love as words that are imbued with meaning and still have the power to transform and transcend.

Krista Tippett is an award winning journalist and author whose interviews are broadcast on public radio and on her podcast entitled On Being. With thoughtful and stimulating questions, Tippett adroitly reveals the wisdom that each of the people she interviews has to offer and shares that with us.  From Pico Iyer, Elizabeth Alexander, Jean Vanier, the Dalai Lama, Maria Popova and many more, Tippett reveals what these men and women have learned about life, love, faith and hope and by doing so she offers us a master class in the art of living.
