An Antidote to Misunderstanding and Bias
Catholic-Jewish book dialogue of "On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the Twenty-First Century" co-authored by Pope Francis and Rabbi Abraham Skorka.
Discussion leaders: Fr. Stephen Lampe and Rabbi Steve Adams
Sponsored by the Lux Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies
Meaningful dialogue between members of different faith communities is an antidote to baseless misunderstanding and hatred. That is why the Lux Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies will be offering Book Dialogue Programs to not only educate the participants, but to also offer opportunities for Catholics and Jews to dialogue with a focus on books of interest to both faith communities. Experts and scholars will present book summaries and perspectives. Small groups with facilitators will gather to dialogue about the book and the comments made by the experts.
