“Rabbi Lerner makes sense, finds meaning and sees hope in an America many feel is spiraling downward into destructive divisions. Passionate but never vindictive, he refuses to demonize anyone but patiently and eloquently projects a religiously based vision for all of us.” --Harvey Cox
“Michael Lerner is the most prophetic intellectual and spiritual leader of our generation. We ignore his wisdom at our peril!” --Cornell West
