Midday on Religion

Dec 4, 2014

We tackle three religion-related stories this hour. First, Donald Kraybill, an expert on Amish culture, examines the spate of violent attacks that took place in Ohio in 2011 that involved nine Amish victims in, "Renegade Amish: Beard Cutting, Hate Crimes, and the Trial of the Bergolz Barbers." Then, we hear from Craig Harline about his experiences as a Mormon missionary. And religious commentator Lerone A. Martin explains the importance of the phonograph in shaping modern African-American religion in, "Preaching on Wax."
