"Exodus, Cargo of Hidden Stories"

That's the title of the latest installment of the fine radio show Speaking of Faith.

Passover begins Monday evening, and this program about the stories inside and around the story of the Exodus is good preparation. Whether you are Jewish, Christian, or neither, there's probably something for you in there.

Those of you who know African American religious history, or even just some of the Spirituals, will remember that the Exodus is a powerful theme in slave religion. It also crops up early in Latin American liberation theology.
