Description:

Join us for A Friendly Letter to Skeptics and Atheists: Musings on Why God Is Good and Faith Isn’t Evil by David Myers.

On balance, is religion toxic? Or does it contribute to human flourishing? Drawing from his recent book, A Friendly Letter to Skeptics and Atheists, David Myers suggests how faith can be reasonable, science-affirming, healthy, hopeful, and humane.

A discussion will follow.
