00:00 - Introduction 02:22 - Free-for-All (Summer Plans) 14:26 - Main Topic (God Is Not One) On episode FIFTY-NINE of Let the Bird Fly! we welcome back Rev. Dr. Mark Braun, this time to talk about why all religions are not the same. The guys use Stephen Prothero's book God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions that Run the World a springboard for their conversation. But before discussing world religions, they briefly discuss their plans for the summer (evidently recording during finals week makes college professor want to talk about summer for some reason). If you're interested in any of Prothero's books mention in the episode, here are some links: God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions that Run the World Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know-And Doesn't American Jesus: How the Son of God Became a National Icon This was Dr. Braun's sixth time on Let the Bird Fly! as a guest and we are truly thankful for the time he has given us.
