In today’s show Chris reads portions of Leon R. Kass’s, The Beginning of Wisdom. The book contains Kass’s reflections on the book of Genesis. Kass is Jewish, and a conservative scholar teaching at the University of Chicago. His reflections on the impiety of Noah’s son Ham, and how Ham’s descendant Nimrod, the political leader behind the Bible’s first political dystopia–Babel–are quite profound. His thoughts on the connection between impiety and totalitarianism provide the basis for discussion for Chris, Tom, and Glenn.
