Elaine Pagels

Sunday, January 6, 2:30 p.m.

 

When renowned religion scholar, National Book Award winner, and New York Times bestselling author Elaine Pagels was dealing with unimaginable loss—the death of her young son, followed a year later by the shocking loss of her husband—questions on the persistence and nature of belief and why religion matters took on a new urgency. In Why Religion?: A Personal Story, Pagels weaves together a personal story with the work that she loves, illuminating how religious traditions have shaped how we understand ourselves; how we relate to one another; and, most importantly, how to get through the most difficult challenges we face.
