This book is a collection of selected posts that Dr. Jill Carroll wrote for her Houston Chronicle blog called Talking Tolerance. The blog was featured in the religion section and enjoyed several thousand readers per week for a number of years beginning in 2007. In these posts, Carroll takes on the hard questions of religious freedom in the diverse, multicultural society that is The United States of America. How do we live together in the midst of radical difference? How might we affirm others without compromising our own beliefs? What is the proper response to things we find offensive? Where are the limits of tolerance, and is tolerance enough, or should we push ourselves for something more like acceptance or celebration? These questions and more drive these posts, and in them readers will find thoughtful, substantial reflections that are respectful and sane, and sometimes really funny. Anyone interested in issues of diversity, religious freedom, and religion in public life will find this book interesting, engaging and informative. More broadly, anyone committed to creating peaceful coexistence in our world among people of all faiths and no faith will find this book indispensable.
