An illuminating conversation between Jenna Weissman Joselit (Charles E. Smith Professor of Judaic Studies and Professor of History at The George Washington University and author of Set in Stone: America's Embrace of the Ten Commandments) and Robert P. Jones (CEO of the Public Religion Research Institute and author of The End of White Christian America) about the values and texts that have shaped US history and culture. Jones’ book looks at a future reality in which America is no longer a white, Christian majority; Joselit’s book examines a time when biblical values were fully and publicly embraced. Join us for this fascinating conversation, during which both thought-leaders will find connections between their deeply researched books and will reflect on what’s to come for a nation that is both united and divided by faith. The conversation will be moderated by Sarah Posner, a Reporting Fellow with The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute, who has covered religion and politics for The Washington Post, The Nation, The New York Times, and many other publications.
