Krista Tippett is a Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and New York Times bestselling author. In 2014, she received the National Humanities Medal at the White House for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.” She is the host of the public radio program and podcast On Being.
From the host of On Being comes a master class in living drawn from the stories of extraordinary individuals who possess “spiritual genius”.The heart of Krista Tippett’s beloved radio program On Being has been to shine a light on the most extraordinary people at work on the big issues and questions of the day, people whose missions kindle in us a sense of wonder. In Becoming Wise, Tippett distills the insights she has gleaned from these luminous characters about the meaning of life in its many dimensions into a coherent narrative journey that explores what it means to be human. The book is a master class in living, curated by Tippett but presided over by a dream team of a teaching faculty.
