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.
