A FEW OF the men from my church joined me earlier this summer for a trip to Independence Hall. One man had never been inside over the course of his 62 years. It was a delightful day of fellowship and history. The men who convened at Independence Hall in 1776 and again in 1787 were brilliant intellects who conceived both independence and a democratic republic. But the ideas that were conceived in their minds had long been fermenting in their hearts. They loved the concept and practice of liberty.

'I just got a call from Matt Damon's agent," social critic and political activist Robert Jensen says in deadpan about his new book, Arguing for Our Lives: A User's Guide to Constructive Dialog . "Matt wants to turn my book into a major Hollywood film. " How could you go wrong with a sexy title like that? That's not to mention the content. A potent attack on the rabid, irrational saber-rattling that passes for political and social discourse today, Arguing for Our Lives is a cogent, closely argued, sober, yet passionate call for ordinary men and women to help save our democracy by reclaiming our intellect, by honing our powers of rational argumentation.
