"Painting With The Brush of Time"

Check out a classic piece from the vast and wondrous archives of one of the best programs on the radio today, Krista Tippett's enthusiastic and always elegant Speaking of Faith (produced by Public Radio International & American Public Media).

In this edition of the program that explores faith in all its polyphony, we encounter the novelist Mary Doria Russell who has grappled with large moral and religious questions on and off the page. We discover what she discerned — in the act of creating a new universe — about God and about dilemmas of evil, doubt, and free will. The ultimate moral of any life and any event, she believes, only shows itself across generations. And so the novelist, like God, she says, paints with the brush of time.
