When everyone believes something different, how can society hold itself together? What role should religion play in the public life of a diverse nation? Christian author and social critic Dr. Os Guinness speaks on the need for civility in the public square as a framework for interaction between church and state that can address the challenges of globalization and diversity. Responding to Dr. Guinness is Dr. Veena Das, professor of anthropology at Johns Hopkins University, who draws on her experience with Hindu thought and Indian social structure to assess the merit of Dr. Guinness’s proposal.
