About Morality: Restoring the Common Good in Divided Times: Published 9/1/20

A distinguished religious leader's stirring case for reconstructing a shared framework of virtues and values.

With liberal democracy embattled, public discourse grown toxic, family life breaking down, and drug abuse and depression on the rise, many fear what the future holds.

In Morality, respected faith leader and public intellectual Jonathan Sacks traces today's crisis to our loss of a strong, shared moral code and our elevation of self-interest over the common good. We have outsourced morality to the market and the state, but neither is capable of showing us how to live. Sacks leads readers from ancient Greece to the Enlightenment to the present day to show that there is no liberty without morality and no freedom without responsibility, arguing that we must all must play our part in rebuilding a common moral foundation.

A major work of moral philosophy, Morality is an inspiring vision of a world in which we can all find our place and face the future without fear.

Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks is an international religious leader, philosopher, award-winning author, and respected moral voice. The chief rabbi of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations from 1991 to 2013 and the recipient of the 2016 Templeton Prize, he is the author of over thirty books, most recently Not in God's Name.
