Edward Beck on Faith

Edward Beck, a Passionist priest,  and author of several books on spirituality (including his compelling memoir God Underneath) is a talented writer and explicator of the faith, who regularly appears on ABC Now and "Good Morning America."  He is intelligent, moderate and helpful on the subject of religion--a rarity these days.  Just recently ABC News pulled together its faith and spirituality content in one place.  So Beck's "Moments of Faith" and his "Focus on Faith" series with Chris Cuomo will be accessible, as well as Dan Harris's "Beliefs" and Nightline's faith content, including a recent series on the Ten Commandments.  Father Beck will also be editing (and occasionally writing) a written reflection, "Weekly Inspiration." He'll be asking people from various faith traditions to contribute to the "Weekly Inspiration" and so should be getting some interesting topics and a variety faith perspectives.  Check it out here.  Even if you don't get ABC Now, I know you get the Internet.
