Dangerous Religious Ideas

Dangerous Religous Ideas
Sunday, November 15th at 11:00 AM

Join us on Zoom in exploring the role of religion in the public square and other important issues with Rabbi Dr. Rachel S. Mikva as she talks about her new book, Dangerous Religious Ideas: The Deep Roots of Self-Critical Faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. All religious ideas are potentially dangerous, even those we might embrace. Because most religious traditions have always understood this risk, they have transmitted tools of self-critique--seeds planted deep in the soil of religious thought designed for us to cultivate. How might these tools shape our public discourse and our own spirituality?

Rabbi Dr. Rachel S. Mikva serves as the Herman E. Schaalman Professor in Jewish Studies and Senior Faculty Fellow of the InterReligious Institute at Chicago Theological Seminary.  The Institute and the Seminary work at the cutting edge of theological education, training religious leaders who can build bridges across cultural and religious difference for the critical work of social transformation.  With a passion for justice and academic expertise in the history of scriptural interpretation, Rabbi Mikva’s courses and publications address a range of Jewish and comparative studies, with a special interest in the intersections of sacred texts, culture and ethics.
