Reginald F. Lewis Hall; 202 Room

In describing the current American mood, many use terms like “polarized,” “alienated,” “divided,” “distrustful.” In describing to its readers how to live with each other, the Bible, in contrast, uses words like “peacemakers” (Matthew 5:9), “reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18), and “unity” (Psalm 133:1). How can we have difficult conversations well in the face of this division? Dr. John Inazu, author of Confident Pluralism: Surviving and Thriving Through Deep Difference (University of Chicago Press) and co-author with Tim Keller of Uncommon Ground: Living Faithfully in a World of Difference (HarperCollins) will address this challenging topic. Join us for an engaging conversation with Q&A and discussion to follow. The discussion will be led Program Fellow Becca Carey ’22 and Program Theologian-in-Residence John Lin. Dr. Inazu is Sally D. Danforth Distinguished Professor of Law & Religion and Professor of Political Science (by courtesy) at Washington University in St. Louis.
