Peter Smith has covered religion for The Courier-Journal since 2000. He blogs about religion and spirituality and how they intersect with our ethics, our work, our schools, our government and other areas of our lives.

He covers Kentucky's and Indiana's diverse religious scene -- from revivals to scandals, from large denominations such as Baptists and Catholics to small but growing groups such as Muslims, Mormons and those with no religious affiliation. He has more than 20 years of experience as a journalist and also worked on the "God beat" as a correspondent for Religion News Service in North America and Europe.

He has received reporting awards from the American Academy of Religion, the Religion Communicators Council and the Louisville chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
