MOORHEAD — Concordia College's Lorentzen Center for Faith and Work is hosting an event exploring the question "How do we build a more trustworthy world?"

The book delves into the "social crisis in which cultural forces are eroding some of our most important democratic institutions," according to a release from Concordia. Levin writes that a recommitment to institutional building is key to revitalizing the American dream.
