The School of Public Policy hosted its annual Patricia Tagliaferri Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series. We were honored to welcome keynote speaker Dennis Prager, founder of PragerU. Prager's newest book, released in April 2018, is the first of his five-volume Bible commentary entitled, The Rational Bible: Exodus – God, Slavery and Freedom. While many people may think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated Prager's explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today's issues, but completely consistent with rational thought.
