GERALD FINZI:
Prelude for String Orch.
Thinking Aloud
Religious Violence
September 11 became something more than a date seven years ago, and for seven years Americans have struggled to understand why it happened. Somewhere beneath the rubble and incredulity of 9/11 lurks an even older question, one that has forced itself on peoples and cultures of every generation: Why religious violence? A Christian, who happens to be an insightful Islamic scholar, joins us to consider Islam, Christianity, and the startling tradition of violence that subverts the core teachings of these religions. —Original airdate: 9/11/2008
