Two of America’s most important public intellectuals—Robert P. George and Cornel West— came together to discuss the urgent need for honesty and courage at a time when mutual suspicion and animosity undermine civic friendship and imperil social order. George and West drew upon the resources of faith and reason—in the biblical tradition—to rise above extreme polarization. Professor Cheryl Sanders of Howard University School of Divinity and president of the Institute on Religion and Democracy, Mark Tooley, served as panelists to reflect on the conversation.
