Who Am I To Judge?: Responding to Relativism with Logic and Love

What is "right" and "wrong"? Is what's right for you, the same as what's right for me? These are difficult questions to discuss in our culture, because we live in a society that supports the idea that there is no moral truth that applies to everyone. In this small group study, Dr. Edward Sri will explore the classical view of morality and find that it's not merely a set of guiding principles, but a way of life.
