Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, a religious leader, philosopher and author of more than 30 books, will deliver a 2017 Terry Sanford Distinguished Lecture, “Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence,” with an introduction by Duke President Richard Brodhead. Sacks’ most recent book, “Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence,” examines the concept of “altruistic evil” and identifies the roots of faith-based violence in misreadings of key biblical texts.
Seating is first-come, first-served. The lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing.
