Praise for Harry Gensler
“Gensler is the world’s most logical, clear, and good-humored teacher of the golden rule. Gensler’s super-clear and sometimes funny visual aids keep you laughing and learning. He clarifies misunderstandings and refutes cheap attacks on the rule; and he brings in practical wisdom, historical information, and diverse religious perspectives. This lecture series is not to be missed.”
– Jeffrey Wattles, Kent State University
