I have published an article "Finding the inner Muslim prince" discussing the increased interest in Islam in the West, mentioning Karen Armstrong, and would like to send it to her. Can anyone let me know how to contact her?

I've written a manuscript called "Love's Bounds: The Partnership and Dominator Versions of Christianity". It builds on Riane Eisler's insights about the competition of partnership or dominator-oriented cultures in looking at the history of Christianity. I would like to contact Karen Armstrong about the project. Can anybody advise me by private e-mail, at firstname.lastname@example.org , how I can send her a letter?
Hoping to say thanks, Brian Griffith

Attn: Karen Armstrong
I read your recent The Great Transformation with a great deal of interest. Bravo! You may be interested to enter into a dialogue re: Socrates--Axial Age hero or zero? I have just [literally days ago] completed a 20-year project to rehabilitate Socrates as a philosopher [As yet unpublished]. My own conclusion: he was likely the greatest representative of the Axial Age and the only European. Your Socrates is strictly the conventional one still peddled at Oxford etc. Interested?

Dear Ms. Armstrong, I have been reading your works for many months now. I have been invited to present some research I am doing on ethics to the Oxford Roundtable on Ethics in Governance held this August. I would very much like to meet with you to discuss my work and yours so that I might better shape my courses. Would this be possible. Wed August 8 afternoon is a free day from the week and I could come to London if you are free. Warmly yours, wjl

Dear Ms. Armstrong,
A friend of mine gave me the book 'Islam' to read, and I loved it. I thought it gave such a different, yet true version of Islam, and thus I wanted to spread what I learned. The book was officially signed by you, from your visit in Montreal. However, the friend I gave it to, has spilled coffee all over it, and ruined the signed copy of this book. Im really upset and I know its a minor thing, but is there any way to get a copy signed by you? I still haven't returned the book back to its original owner, who is under the impression that it is perfectly fine. I could send you a new copy to sign.
Please let me know how to go about this.

"Right wing" is merely a label, and in your review of Robert Spencer's book, a hurled insult. Meanwhile, Spencer is seen as a scholar. Why do you not debate him? Why do you fear to debate him?
Is this post promoting other Web sites? No, it's promoting getting to the bottom of this question: "Which of you -- Armstrong or Spencer -- is sloppy beyond measure?" The answer has great implications for public policy and war.
Here's Spencer's response came early on 28 April on his Web site (jihadwatch DOT org)
Please check it out.

Dear Ms. Armstrong, I recently began reading one of your books which was loaned to me by a friend. I was told that it was a very good explanation of the conflict in the Middle East(ie: It's roots and current problems from an historical and scholarly perspective). To say the least I was very disappointed and shocked by your ignorance. I can certainly see why you are so popular in this age of skeptcism. However, your premise that all of Christianity can be reduced to 'myth" astounds me. From a scholarly perspective you offer no evidence. What you offer is your opinion. My opinion as regards your opinion is that you are an "ex-nun" struggling with being comfortable in your own skin, with lots of issues involving men, and little true knowledge of the Christian faith and the reason that many have given their lives to deliver the "Good News" to the world that God loves them. He loved them and you so much that He came into our presence in the form of a man to take our sin upon Him.. That shows the type of love that I can believe in. When you said in your book that "nothing that was predicted centuries ago has taken place" your very words demonstrate the ushering into the world of the "Antichrist". God is very, very patient "and does not wish that any should be lost". He might be saying to you, 'Saul, Saul, why persecutest though Me?." Sincerely, Betsy Eakins P.S. I am a "'Christian" and want you to know that in spite of your rebellion God still loves you. That's a miracle in our midst in itself.

I just finished reading your book, "Through the Narrow Gate". Words can not express how much your book has touch my heart. Thank you for sharing your story with me. I was inspired by your insight and I was humbled by your Love for God.
My in-laws are Catholic, my husband is not a practicing Catholic. Our family attends a non-demonational church regulary, however we attend Christmas Eve Mass every year with my inlaws. Honestly, your book opened my eyes and my heart during the mass. For the first time in 13 years Christmas Eve Mass made sense to me.
I am looking forward to reading more of your books.
