The Intolerance of Tolerance by D.A. Carson

The issue of “tolerance” is a key term in our society today.  It is used to reframe the debate in countless areas.  Somehow, claiming that some one is intolerant has become the unpardonable sin of any conversation or issue.

Dr. D.A. Carson’s new book, The Intolerance of Tolerance, evaluates the inconsistency and incoherence of this view.

This short 5 minute excerpt of of audio on YouTube is worth your undivided attention if you would like to be relevant in dialogue in our society.

I’d love to hear your thoughts about this issue.  Listen to the audio first and then add your comments.
