Doug Groothuis review of "The Case for Civility" by Os Guinness
Parts of this significant section were cut out:
Unlike tolerance, civility, on the contrary, requires knowledge and courage. Guinness argues that civility is a higher virtue than mere tolerance, which easily devolves into apathy and indifference. Civility is not the fruit of relativism, which despairs of objective moral knowledge.
Nevertheless, I hope my short review will encourage many to read this important book.
