"Keeping Faith" interview with Martha Himmelfarb

Here is my interview with Martha Himmelfarb, the William H. Danforth Professor of Religion at Princeton, in the Daily Princetonian's six-part series of interviews entitled "Keeping Faith":


Toward the end of the interview we talk a bit about Professor Himmelfarb's father, the late Milton Himmelfarb, long-time editor of the Jewish Yearbook for the American Jewish Committee.  He was one of my intellectual heroes, and deeply influenced my own thinking about religion and society.  People not familiar with his writings might want to have a look at a collection of his essays edited by his sister, the distinguished historian Gertrude Himmelfarb, under the title Jews and Gentiles (Encounter Books, 2007). I particularly recommend "Modernity and Religion," "Judaism is Against Paganism," "No Hitler, No Holocaust," and "Church and State: How High a Wall?"
