Books and Bridges: David Bokovoy discusses The Hebrew Prophets and Social Justice

An examination of the writings of the Old Testament prophets from the standpoint of social justice, not religious authority. These figures had a lot to say about how society should be constructed to help the disadvantaged and why it's important to speak truth to power and entrenched authority. Led by Utah State University professor of Religious and Jewish Studies David Bokovoy.

This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
