Dangerous Religious Ideas
All religious ideas are dangerous--even those that stand at the heart of religion. Come speak with Rabbi Mikva about the tools our traditions have bequeathed us for recognizing and guarding against them. They stand as models of self-critical faith, making room for multiple voices, doubt, change, and the sometimes slippery nature of truth. Building on them, we also find valuable roadmaps for navigating difference--even as we still struggle to determine the proper role of religion in our collective public life.

Dangerous Religious Ideas will serve as the jumping-off point for a month-long conversation with diverse religious leaders about the important ideas raised within. So we ask that you purchase a copy of the book when you register--although you do not need to have read the whole thing by the time we begin on January 20.

Speakers

Rabbi Rachel S. Mikva, Ph.D.
Rabbi Dr. Rachel S. Mikva serves as the Herman E. Schaalman Professor in Jewish Studies and Senior Faculty Fellow of the InterReligious Institute at Chicago Theological Seminary. The Institute and the Seminary work at the cutting edge of theological education, training religious leaders who can build bridges across cultural and religious difference for the critical work of social transformation. With a passion for justice and academic expertise in the history of scriptural interpretation, Rabbi Mikva's courses and publications address a range of Jewish and comparative studies, with a special interest in the intersections of sacred texts, culture and ethics. Her most recent book is Dangerous Religious Ideas: The Deep Roots of Self-Critical Faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (Beacon, 2020), and she is working on a textbook for graduate and undergraduate students, Interreligious Studies: An Introduction, to be published by Cambridge University Press.
