Mortimer Adler: A Man You Should Get to Know

Dear Friends,

Every kid had heroes and every artist has influences.  One of my biggest heroes and influences is a man named Mortimer Adler.  He went home to be with the Lord in 2001, but if there is a man whose voice is more needed in our day, I’d challenge you to name him.

If you’d like to learn a bit about who Mortimer Adler was before viewing the following video, here is a short bio.

For today’s post, I’m offering a nine minute video of Adler that was shot 43 years ago.  If you watch this video, those of you who know me fairly well will probably figure out why I like Mortimer so very much.  If you’re interested in the growth of your mind – which is an essential part of the growth of your soul – you should get to know Mortimer Adler.
