Episode #25: Dr. David G. Myers

Dr. David G. Myers

Listen Here:

My guest this week is social psychologist David G. Myers. Dr. Myers is an internationally renowned scientist, author, and teacher whose research and writing have covered a wide range of topics, including group behavior, prejudice, personality, religion, intuition, hearing loss, and personal well-being. Over the past 35 years he has published 18 books—several of which are best-selling textbooks in their 8th, 9th, or 10th edition—and dozens of scientific articles in leading journals such as Science, Psychological Bulletin, Psychological Science, and the American Psychologist. He has also served as consulting editor to the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and the Journal of Positive Psychology, and he is a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science, the American Association of Applied and Preventive Psychology, and Divisions 1, 2, 8, 9, and 36 of the American Psychological Association.

Today we discuss his 2005 book, What God Has Joined Together: The Christian Case for Gay Marriage, which he co-authored with Letha Dawson Scanzoni. The book is an effort to bridge the divide between marriage-supporting and gay-supporting people of faith by showing why both sides have important things to say. By affirming marriage for all, What God Has Joined Together concurs with conservatives’ call for marriage renewal and a more marriage-supporting culture. And it concurs with liberals’ affirmation of everyone’s right, regardless of sexual orientation, to seal love with commitment and to participate fully in the church’s life and ministry.
