Moral Leadership for a Divided Age explores the lives of fourteen great moral leaders and the wisdom they offer us today. Through skillful storytelling and honest appraisals of their legacies, we encounter exemplary human beings who are flawed in some ways, gifted in others.

In this book discussion series, the group will discuss two leaders each week, using the questions the authors provide at the end of each chapter. The first session will explore the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and, as our series begins on Martin Luther King, Jr. day, the life of that extraordinary leader as well. The Reverend Paul D. Sinnott will lead us as moderator. 
 
There will be copies of the book available at OWL in the weeks leading up to the discussion series. Check out your copy and come to the first meeting ready to discuss the chapters on Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Martin Luther King, Jr.
