Religion in U.S. Culture and Society


Michael Lerner, Editor, Tikkun Magazine; Rabbi
Michael Maudlin, Editorial Director, Harper San Francisco
Stephen Prothero, Chair of Religion Department, Boston University

Studies show that Americans are more religious than people in other western countries, but battles still rage in the United States over the role of religion in everyday public life. This panel of religious scholars will comment on transcending individualism and selfishness in a commercial society, on addressing the variety of faiths in our spiritually diverse society and the debate over spirituality raging in the American Left.
