David Brooks on telling the American story

The New York Times columnist discusses the challenges and opportunities of the American narrative in coming generations — and why the Bible will be essential for it

What will be the challenges and opportunities of telling the American story in the coming generation? And why is the Bible essential for that national telling and re-telling? Ari Lamm is joined by New York Times columnist David Brooks to discuss:

  • America’s unique relationship with the Book of Exodus
  • Why the Hebrew prophets are essential for understanding race and racism in American history
  • Why Bruce Springsteen is one of the great American Biblical commentators
  • What the Bible might have to say about space billionaires
  • And so much more!

About Good Faith Effort: The Hebrew Bible is every bit America’s moral founding document as the Constitution is our political founding document. Every week, Rabbi Dr. Ari Lamm speaks with thinkers, writers, artists, and faith leaders to explore how the Bible continues to inform our lives today, from politics to psychology to pop culture, bringing Americans of different traditions and persuasions closer together as so much else threatens to pull us apart.
