Most of us struggle to get along with people whose beliefs are so different from our own. Politics, religion, and social issues divide us now more than ever. In this episode, I talk to Dr. John Inazu, the Sally D. Danforth Distinguished Professor of Law and Religion at Washington University in St. Louis. His book Confident Pluralism is all about how to build bridges with people we disagree with while holding on deeply to our own beliefs. http://carverstl.org
