What We Believe and Why Radio:

The full content of the book What We Believe and Why is below, in a series of 30 minute radio programs. You can listen to ALL of it here, for free, or download each one as an MP3.

These were originally broadcast on WYLL radio, AM 1160 in Chicago, and are available for syndication. Contact us here.

You may also get an audiobook (in full chapters, rather than 30 minute segments) for those who prefer to listen rather than read, and for the sight-impaired. You can purchase it here.
