Urquhart has recently published her first novel, "The Visionist," which is a widely acclaimed historical drama about a teenage girl who finds refuge --- or perhaps does not find refuge --- in an 1840s Shaker community.

It was basically considered bad form, and it was against the rules in many American workplaces. Today, that's often <em>not</em> the case. When did this change occur? And why? Our guest is Dr. David Miller, who serves as Director of the Princeton University Faith and Work Initiative. As such, he both researches and lectures on business ethics as well as the intersection of faith and work (in the US and around the globe).

Kivel is also a social-justice activist and educator whose new book, just out, is "Living in the Shadow of the Cross: Understanding and Resisting the Power and Privilege of Christian Hegemony." It is, to be sure, a work that makes several debatable points, and that takes as "given" several contentious assertions --- and so Kivel defends (and elaborates on) many of these points and assertions on this edition of ST.

Lewis novel of the same title, which is a widely cherished little book (commonly seen as a masterpiece, and dating from the early 1940s) that presents letters written by one of Satan&#39;s leading demons (named Screwtape) to his nephew (named Wormwood).
