Armed with a generous heart, subtle mind, and a PhD in comparative religion from Columbia, Lex Hixon, as host for WBAI’s In the Spirit was able to interview and skillfully probe the leading spiritual lights of the seventies. Roughly 34 of those interviews, finely edited, appear here for the first time in print. Includes short bios and photos.

“I’ve always believed that radio can be an instrument of grace.”
~ from the preface by Paul Gorman

“Lex was the only person I’ve ever met who entered so deeply into many different belief systems and manifested so completely in that way. The other person that comes to mind – who I’ve only read about, of course – is Ramakrishna.”
~ from the foreword by Roshi Bernie Glassman
