Dangerous Religious Ideas: The Deep Roots of Self-Critical Faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam
February 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Dangerous Religious Ideas: The Deep Roots of Self-Critical Faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam Please join us online for presentation and Q&A with Rabbi Dr. Rachel S. Mikva who will discuss her new book which examines how adherents to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have wrestled with tension between the power of these traditions to do good and the power of these traditions to inspire violence. Her book opens a fresh public conversation about how we can create constructive engage across religious difference committed to the common good. 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.
