“Why is it that each of us holds the beliefs that we do?” Daniel Oppenheimer asks this question in his remarkable new book. For answers, he excavates the lives and writings of six 20th-century intellectuals, politicians and journalists — Whittaker Chambers, James Burnham, Ronald Reagan, Norman Podhoretz, David Horowitz, and Christopher Hitchens — who experienced political or ideological conversions, starting left, veering right. Each of these six lives challenges us to ask where our own beliefs come from, and what it might take to change them.

When Constantine claimed the empire in 306, Christian teaching was varied and inconsistent. A minority camp called Jesus divine and equal to God the Father but the majority saw Jesus as subordinate to the Father and lacking in absolute divinity. The first "ecumenical" Council of the Chuch, convened by Constantine in the city of Nicaea, changed that forever.

In October 2012, CG played a key role in helping to bring together three major global interreligious organizations in a gathering of 250 religious leaders, scholars, and activists. We met in Rome and then in Florence, Italy to take up a critical question: Do religion and spirituality evolve or do they merely change? The verdict of the conference was a resounding “Yes” for religious evolution...and for the gradual improvement and enrichment of religion and the spiritual search. Why? What were we thinking? And just what does it portend?

We all know that every religion manifests itself in a number of ways. This Forum will focus on three, which Jim terms “the Good, the Bad, and the Very Ugly.” We’ll begin with a brief synopsis of each and then move into a more open discussion. We’ll be particularly concerned with some of the disturbing religious attitudes that surfaced during the past year. But we’ll also be looking for more hopeful signs in the U.S. and around the world.
