During the month of October at the 10 a.m. adult education
hour, Lisa Pruitt will lead a discussion of Jonathan
Haidt’s The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided
by Politics and Religion (2012).
This very readable book provides a terrific framework for
thinking about differences of opinion on issues like immigration
and refugees, same-sex marriage, abortion, public benefits
availability, and other hot-button issues of the day.
Conservatives tend to have moral justifications for their
positions, as do liberals, so what gives? Haidt has some
eye-opening explanations for these differences.
The book is written in a very accessible style, and Haidt
includes helpful summaries at the end of each chapter. The book
is divided into three sections, so Lisa plans to introduce the
book on Oct. 7 and then to cover one section on each of the
remaining three Sundays of the month. The book is available at
most bookstores and on
Amazon. A limited number of copies are also available for
purchase from the church office for $10 (first come, first
serve). Please join Lisa for this exciting study.
