On this episode of Indivisible: What does the coded word “elite” really stand for? Intellectual snob? Rich, out-of-touch, liberal? Fat-cat Wall Street banker? In an age of global populism, all of the above are fair game for politicians trying to connect with angry voters.

Stephen Prothero discute God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World--and Why Their Differences Matter.
Author Stephen Prothero, head of the Religion department at Boston University, presents his latest book, God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World--and Why Their Differences Matter. Books will be available for signing and purchase. Summary: For good and for evil, religion is the single greatest influence in the world. In God Is Not One, Prothero provides readers with this much-needed content about each of the eight great religions: to claim that all religions are the same is to misunderstand that each attempts to solve a different human problem. A bold polemical response to a generation of misguided scholarship, God Is Not One creates a new context for understanding religion in the twenty-first century and disproves common assumptions. Stephen Prothero is a professor in the Department of Religion at Boston University and the author of numerous books, most recently God is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World--and Why Their Differences Matter, and the New York Times bestseller Religious Literacy. He has commented on religion on dozens of National Public Radio programs, and on television on CNN, NBC, MSNBC, FOX, and PBS. He has been a guest on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart and "The Oprah Winfrey Show." A regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal and USA Today, Prothero has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Boston Globe.

Stephen Prothero is the New York Times bestselling author of Religious Literacy and a professor of religion at Boston University. In his new book, God is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World—And Why Their Differences Matter, Prothero shows how the world’s religions ask very different questions, tackle very different problems, and aim at very different goals. Breaking from the popular theory of many religion writers that all religions are “different paths to the same God,” Prothero highlights the unique contributions each tradition has made to our collective conversation about the things that matter most. In God Is Not One, Stephen Prothero supplies readers with much-needed literacy about each of the world’s great religions—opening our eyes to the religious clashes that threaten us worldwide, and creating a new context for the study of religion in the 21st century.
