Lesley Hazleton: The Doubt Essential To Faith

**Description direct from TED

When Lesley Hazleton was writing a biography of Muhammad, she was struck by something: The night he received the revelation of the Koran, according to early accounts, his first reaction was doubt, awe, even fear. And yet this experience became the bedrock of his belief. Hazleton calls for a new appreciation of doubt and questioning as the foundation of faith — and an end to fundamentalism of all kinds. **

This video spoke to me in a lot of ways. I could write a lot about this particular TED talk, but for now I’ll just put it here, and possibly have an update pertaining to it after this holiday ends and this busy week gives me some breathing (Read: blogging) room. This is her WordPress.
