Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair sat down with religion reporters in New Haven before his final class on "Faith and Globalization"
at Yale University, and the America Magazine Podcast
was in attendance. The class is among the first initiatives launched by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation
, which seeks to promote understanding among religions and show that faith can be a force for good in the modern world. Mr. Blair responded to questions about the rise of the new atheism, Rick Warren, Catholic social teaching and what he has learned from his students.
