Summary:
"Peter Kreeft lets an attractive, honest, and funny relativist interview a 'Muslim fundamentalist' absolutist so as not to stack the dice personally for absolutism. In a series of personal interviews, every conceivable argument the 'sassy Black feminist' reporter Libby gives against absolutism is simply and clearly refuted, and none of the many arguments for moral absolutism is refuted."--Jacket.
