Join me this Saturday, 5/10/2014, as I interview Mary Poplin discussing her book "Is Reality Secular?"
"Dr. Mary Poplin is professor of education at Claremont Graduate University where she teaches courses on learning and pedagogical theories, philosophy and education, and qualitative research. She is a frequent speaker in academic and religious forums. She has been both founder and director of the current Master’s teacher education program and dean. Her most recent research is a five-year study of high-performing teachers in low-performing urban schools in some of the poorest neighborhoods in LA. Her book, Finding Calcutta, is about her experience volunteering with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity. Her more recent book, Is Reality Secular, is a reflection and analysis of four global worldviews, their principles, their similarities and differences with the Christian worldview and their consequences on lives, nations and cultures."
In the book, Poplin looks at four different worldviews and asks how each of them explains reality looking at the fundamental question of why we should think reality is secular. This will also include looking at how she came to the worldview that she has while working at Claremont.
