Karen Armstrong: Love Thy Enemy
The New York Public Library - Celeste Bartos Forum
Karen Armstrong, one of the most original thinkers on the role of religion in modern life, joins LIVE for a talk about making the world a more compassionate place. Armstrong believes that while all human beings are intrinsically compassionate, we each need to work to cultivate and expand our capacity for this important instinct. She demonstrates that a compassionate life is not a matter of only heart or mind but a deliberate and often life-altering commingling of the two.This program is part of a series of events related to NYPL’s exhibition Three Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, Islam on view in the Gottesman Exhibition Hall, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building through February 27, 2011.
