Ask Karen Armstrong anything!

Ask her anything >>

Religious thinker Karen Armstrong has written more than 20 books on faith and the major religions, studying what Islam, Judaism and Christianity have in common, and how our faiths shaped world history and drive current events. She argues that compassion is the core, fundamental idea behind the three Abrahamic religions, and she is working to help people of faith rediscover this principle.

Armstrong has given two TEDTalks (see her 2008 and 2009 talk), and the result of her 2008 TED Prize wish, the Charter for Compassion, will be unveiled on Nov. 12.

Don’t miss her recent article in The Wall Street Journal, in which she and fellow TEDster Richard Dawkins answer the question “Where does evolution leave God?”

Submit your questions on Reddit and we’ll ask the highest-voted ones as of noon Pacific time on Friday, October 30th. (Note: Any questions in the comments of this blog entry will not be eligible.)
