Linda LaScola discusses the new blog she’s editing, Rational Doubt, The Clergy Project Blog. She also discusses her collaboration with philosopher Daniel Dennett on a study of non-believing clergy and a 2013 book about that work, Caught in the Pulpit, Leaving Belief Behind. LaScola is a qualitative researcher, and has traveled around the country interviewing people on numerous subjects, including health, mental health, public policy and religion. She been doing this for more than 25 years. LaScola earned a Master of Social Work from The Catholic University. The blog and the book provide unique insight into thoughts and arguments directly from the minds of those who preside in the pulpit – or used to. Both are valuable and informative reading.
