A book presentation and public discussion

with Prof. Jonathan IMBER, Professor of Sociology at Wellesley College, Prof. Frederick LAWRENCE, Professor of Systematic Theology at Boston College, and Fr. José MEDINA, FSCB, National leader of the ecclesial movement Communion and Liberation

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center

Fr. Julián Carrón’s Disarming Beauty: Essays on Faith, Truth and Freedom, published in 2017 by University of Notre Dame Press, offers a broad diagnosis of the challenges in society, and then introduces their implications in the context of families, schools, workplaces, and political communities. In a dialogue with his audience, he inspires and encourages them to lay out a new path for the Catholic Church and the world. Throughout his essays, Carrón addresses the most pressing questions today and provides insights that will interest everyone, from the most devout to the firm nonbeliever. Grappling with the interaction of Christian faith and modern culture, Carrón treats in very real and concrete ways what is essential to maintaining and developing Christian faith, and he invites an ongoing conversation about its purpose.

The event is free and open to the public.
