Book Talk: How Millennials Can Lead Us Out of the Mess We’re In

Book Talk: How Millennials Can Lead Us Out of the Mess We’re In November 25, 2020

A new book, How Millenneials Can Lead Us Out of the Mess We’re In: A Jew, a Muslim, and a Christian Share Leadership Lessons From the Life of Moses, by Mordecai Schreiber, Iqbal Unus, and Ian Case Punnett explores leadership through an interfaith conversation about a shared ancient religious narrative for our current situation.

Here’s the book’s blurb:

During troubled times, millions have been inspired by the stories and spiritual lessons of the selfless leadership of Moses. In a world increasingly affected by political, social, and racial imbalance, we need strong, innovative leaders who have not forgotten or ignored these valuable lessons. How Millennials Can Lead Us Out of the Mess We’re In: A Jew, a Muslim, and a Christian Share Leadership Lessons from the Life of Moses brings together an Israeli-born rabbi, a Pakistani-born Muslim scholar, and an ordained Midwestern American to inspire the next generation of leaders with a timeless story of the ancient prophet Moses. Written in an easy and accessible style, this book is meant for sincerely spiritual but church-resistant Bible readers as well as those who are familiar with the Moses narrative. No leadership book has ever attempted to synthesize the religious views of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity into one unified, harmonious voice singing a single hymn.

On Monday, December 1 at 11:40 Central, contributing authors’ will participate in a panel sponsored jointly by United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities (where I teach and serve as dean), and The Islamic Seminary of America. These two institutions have entered in a partnership to offer an MDiv program in Interreligious Chaplaincy, with an Islamic focus. This book discussion event is one of many future events we hope to do together as the partnership develops.
