About the Book

Popular opinion has become so polarized that it should be no surprise that individuals find themselves increasingly alienated from others. As a result, an increasing number of people are wondering who they are and how they should relate to others. Discernment, however, can help us discover that the “other” really is nothing more than a construct. The Lost Art of Discernment promotes the importance of such things as humility, openness, compassion, and developing a healthy critical consciousness. The book also seeks to answer questions such as: What is reality in this day of “reality” shows and conspiracy theories? How has our compass for gauging the truth devolved so quickly? Why are we so reluctant to trust anyone outside of our tribe? The author also explores topics such as abortion, Black Lives Matter, political posturing, gun control, race baiting, and more. There is so much more than thinking outside the box: We must realize that the box needs to be discarded altogether as it is only a byproduct of smoke and mirrors. Explore biases, ask the right questions, and consider the arguments of others with this book that seeks to heal divisions.
