Love, Mental Virtues, and Civility [From the Table #8]

From From the Table

Does Jesus' teaching on agape love suggest a better way toward civil discourse? Would changing our attitude or tone produce better conversations about tough cultural issues? How can we walk the fine line between being convicted in our beliefs while being open-minded and kind? CCT Directors Gregg Ten Elshof, Steve Porter, and Tom Crisp discuss "Intellectual Virtue and Civil Discourse" at the outset of our year dedicated to this topic. Recorded August 27, 2014 #mentalvirtues #civility
