John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge talked about their book God Is Back: How the Global Revival of Faith Is Changing the World (Penguin Press, April 2009). In their book they explore the history of religion and politics. They argue that while religious fervor and political unrest are reinforcing each other all around the world, religion and modernity can thrive together. Religion with an American emphasis on competition and free choice could channel the rising tide of faith away from volatility and violence as market forces reshape the world. The authors were then joined by Luis Lugo in a discussion moderated by Henry Olsen. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience.

John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge are also the co-authors of The Company: A Short History of a Revolutionary Idea; A Future Perfect: The Challenge and Promise of Globalization and The Witch Doctors: Making Sense of the Management Gurus. close
