At the Cleveland State Law Review, Prof. Francis Beckwith reviews Debating Religious Liberty and Discrimination. From the review:
Corvino, Girgis, and Anderson are wonderfully engaging thinkers, writing with clarity, intelligence, and verve. But, best of all, they provide a superb model on how the rest of us mere mortals ought to engage in public debate over controversial moral questions that often challenge our powers of forbearance and charity . . . . May their tribe increase.

On October 11, John joined Prof. Robin Fretwell Wilson and moderator Dr. John Jackson, the President of William Jessup University, at the Fifth Annual Court/Clergy Conference in Sacramento, for a panel on “Building Bridges in Polarizing Times.” The Conference brought together people from across the political spectrum to discuss religious liberty and related issues.
John has just released his new “Better Argument” series on YouTube, a baker’s dozen of very short videos on identifying fallacies and promoting more productive dialogue. The project was filmed at Wayne State University by James Wright and Mayabeth Jagosz and supported by a grant from the American Philosophical Association. This is a pilot series; there are plans for future installments.
