In a world torn by religious conflict, threats to human dignity and freedom are terrifyingly real. Some societies face harsh government repression, some experience brutal sectarian violence, while others in the West are divided by bitter controversies over the place of religion in public life. How then are we to live with our deepest religious and ideological differences? 


In this lecture, "The Global Public Square: Religious Freedom and the Making of a World Safe for Diversity," Os Guinness called for a bold reaffirmation of the priority of religious freedom for people of all faiths and none, inviting the U.S. to transcend its culture warring and regain its historic leadership on this issue. He demonstrated that the way forward for the world lies in promoting freedom of religion and belief, and in creating a civil public square that empowers such freedom.
