First Topic - #30: The Ruth Institute for the Study of Marriage and Society
The trend toward women’s increased participation in higher education and the labor market began at the turn of the twentieth century. In the 1960's, a handful of Marxist women defined the meaning of these important trends. This Marxist interpretation, anti-market, anti-family, anti-religion and ultimately, anti-male, has not served women well. Intelligent women are searching for a new model of their participation in the public square. The Ruth Institute for the Study of Marriage and Society gives these women the alternative they seek. The goal of its founder, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, is to make marriage cool. She joins us.
Second Topic - #29: Deification and Grace

Human beings come to share in the Trinitarian life, without blurring the distinction between Creator and creature.
