But this TEDx talk he recently gave with his wife Jessica Jackley, a co-founder of the microlending site Kiva, about interfaith marriage is really, really good. (Jackley grew up as an evangelical Christian, while Aslan is a Muslim.)
They discuss how marriages between people of different religious beliefs (including atheists) are happening more often, how and why they can work, and how they’re handling the differences with their own kids.
Seems like a good time to mention that my friend Dale McGowan wrote an excellent book on this topic, specifically focusing on atheists in relationships with religious people. It’s called In Faith and In Doubt, and I’ve lost track of how many people I’ve recommended it to.
