Many of us are stunned by harsh and mean-spirited comments from both sides of the political aisle — whether from presidential candidates or our own Facebook friends. In Today’s Conversation, Leith Anderson talks with Richard Mouw on incivility in the public square and how to address it.
In this podcast, you’ll hear from a distinguished evangelical statesman, who has spent much of his life and career addressing civility, on:
- How to bring “conviction” and “civility” together;
- The differences between the tenor of today’s public discourse and that of past decades;
- Which Bible passages challenge our own rhetoric; and
- How the cultural marginalization of evangelicals impacts the way we interact with others.
