Review by: Crissavol Lupher on April 10, 2013 :
"Social Truths" reminded me that our moral gut-checks are necessary hesitations that can lead to a correct view. What is morally acceptable in our culture is dynamic. We continuously make moral decisions within our lives--our actions ARE our morals. I look forward to reading more of his work.
