BBC Radio has a number of informative radio series which are regularly produced; many of the programs are also available as free podcasts.  One of my favorites is called “Heart and Soul,” a weekly program which explores religious and spiritual themes from around the world.  A friend of mine living in Jordan, Besim Bruncaj, sent me a link to one particular Heart and Soul program which discusses the subject of the 99 Most Beautiful Names of God.  With a typically beautiful set of voices narrating ( it is the BBC, after all), this particular ‘cast visits the Qur’anic tradition of the 99 Names through many avenues of Islam and a number of differing perspectives.  Thank you, Besim – this was remarkably informative and enjoyable.
