Yesterday I attended an evening lecture with Karen Armstrong at The Church of the Transfiguration. One question that I wish I asked her would be: after writing all the books and doing all the extensive research, does Ms. Armstrong feel like she knows God?

Dear Karen, I am a Christian who listened to your npr "A case for God" story today.
I was encouraged to share a few things- Joyce Meyers (a worldwide minister)had a wonderful show just today promoting God's Calling for US to "help others," and have compassion for others. It emphasized just How important to God that we do help others out of compassion and how our heart really acheives happiness this way. She simply marketed it as "Love Revolution." I encourage you to read about it and Joyce Meyers' teachings (in addition to many other Christian Ministers) how important it is we have a PERSONAL relationship w/ God! It develops a Direct Connection from our hearts to God. I am truly sorry to hear you could not Share your Compassions with God during PRAYER (that your Heart felt empty) because of your brain's inability to focus - distracting you from asking God for Wonderful changes in your heart to help you personally reach Him (feel His Presence) in Prayer. You could be successfully praying the many Compassions of all your hopes, other's needs, world desires, Your personal thanks to God, any other healing requests on your heart. He wants us to seek Him PERSONALLY so We become changed, having Faith IN HIS LOVE & TRUST in our lives enabling us to have amazing Love for Others. God needs many more people to be praying for as MANY compassion needs and compassion callings as possible. I pray to God for YOUR gentle healing, his softening of your heart, his changing of your Mind, so you may return to Prayer and close relations w/ Him. Even writing your prayers is beautiful. Blessings to you forever, Allison

Hi Karen. I'm a post-graduate student at the university of sydney in the last semester of a master of peace and conflict studies. I'm also an ex-fundamentalist Christian with continuing ties with family and friends in Christian fundamentalist community. I am interested in using my unique position and my ability to see the world both through the lens of a fundamentalist christian paradigm and my own present panentheistic perspective. My masters dissertation was "An Ethical Dilemma: Childhood Conversion in Christian Fundamentalism". I got a HD and my next step is to get it published and next year begin a PhD. I love your work and wanted to get in touch with you in case you have any advice on how I might capitalise on my position so to assist the prevention of the "Clash of Civilisations" that may take place should fundamentalist movements continue to polarise their dogmas and indoctrinate their children into opposing religious identities. Best wishes, Juliet.

Re. Miss Armstrong and the 'Dr' issue, she is not Dr because she finished but, owing - I iamgine - to the narrowminded egotism of her examiners (it does happen at Oxford), she did not pass her DPhil. She has, though, since proved herself.

As one who has written very sympathetically about the Buddha, and whoi has a very broad interest in the different faiths, I wondered if you would be interested in looking at a book I have just completed (for publication next sumnmer entitled 'Buddhist Christianity' which argues a strong case for combining definite comitments to both faiths. I expect your busy scedule will prevent this, but write in hope - Ross Thompson
