In our current age of social media filter bubbles, a twenty-four-hour news channel to suit any worldview, and the ability to go through an entire day without speaking to another human being if we want to, it’s incredibly easy to misunderstand other people–to settle for the easy, less human explanation of who those different from you are and what motivates them to be that way. As Christians, we’re called to something greater–to know and love our neighbors, even and especially those different from us. Even further, we’re called to forgive those who misunderstand us. Our guest tonight understands this call, as well as understands that sometimes the most harmful misunderstandings are the ones we have of ourselves. We’re happy to welcome Mary DeMuth to Christian Humanist Profiles to discuss her book The Most Misunderstood Women of the Bible: What Their Stories Tell Us About Thriving.
