Sinopse

The Greek philosopher Socrates famously said that the unexamined life is not worth living. Taking this as a starting point, Eric Metaxas thought it would be valuable to create a forum that might encourage busy professionals in thinking about the bigger questions in life. Thus Socrates In The City: Conversations on the Examined Life was born. Our founder and host, Eric Metaxas, is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Martin Luther, If You Can Keep It, Bonhoeffer, Amazing Grace, and Miracles. His books have been translated into more than twenty-five languages. His writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and The New Yorker, and Metaxas has appeared as a cultural commentator on CNN, the Fox News Channel, and MSNBC.
