In a radical departure from this "conventional wisdom," Carl Anderson explores what the talking heads have missed: an overwhelming American consensus on many of the country's seemingly most divisive issues. If the debates are shrill in public, he says, there is a quiet consensus in private - one that America's institutions ignore at their peril. From health care, to the role of religion in America, to abortion, to the importance of traditional ethics in business and society, Anderson uses fresh polling data and keen insight in BEYOND A HOUSE DIVIDED to show that a surprising consensus has emerged despite these debates. He sheds light on what's been missing in the public and political debates of the last several years: the consensus that isn't hard to find if you know where to look.
For Anderson, allowing polar opposites to drive the discussion has made the resolution of contentious issues impossible. Instead, he says, we should look to the consensus among Americans as the best prospect for a beneficial conclusion.
As Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Carl A. Anderson is the CEO and chairman of the board of the worlds largest Catholic fraternal service organization, with more than 1.7 million members. He is the author or co-author of four books two of which have been New York Times best-sellers. In the decade since Anderson assumed the responsibilities of Supreme Knight in 2000, the Knights of Columbus have achieved new heights in charitable giving. During that time, the Knights have donated $1.4 billion directly to charity, while volunteering 640 million hours to charitable causes. A member of the bar of the District of Columbia, he and his wife Dorian are the parents of five children.
