David French, a senior editor of The Dispatch, a columnist at Time, and the author of “Divided We Fall,” reviewed Andrew Sullivan's book, "Out on a Limb" in today's New York Times. His review causes me to want to read the book.
But French said something in his review that struck a chord with me:
"This world is almost impossibly complex. Conventional wisdom is frequently wrong. No partisan side has a monopoly on truth. In these circumstances, a nation needs writers and thinkers who will say hard things, whose fearlessness gives you confidence that you’re hearing their true thoughts."
