Esther Dozier, the dynamic pastor of the Clinton AME Zion Church, needed a photo of David presenting his book about the church to her, so I went down (after an intense yoga class, the kind that demands a hot bath afterward, so I’m afraid I missed the service) to do a photo shoot. I’ve taken many photos in the church, and of the congregation. Here are Esther and David. We also arranged about donating 10% of the proceeds from the book to the church, and will be interviewing Esther after Christmas for the new book David and I are doing together, a collection of interviews with American believers, called for the moment The Voice of Faith. We have met a number of impressive, thoughtful believers in the course of our work on religion and society, and feel that they are not understood by the liberal intellectuals we spend most of our time with. We’re looking for a way to bridge that gap. We are looking for believers of different faiths to interview, so if you know someone who is particularly impressive, of any faith (mainstream or otherwise), we’d love to hear from you.
