April 16: Dr. Kenneth Craycraft Book Launch
Location: Bartlett Center - Mount St. Mary's Seminary & School of Theology
Join Mount St. Mary’s Seminary & School of Theology (MTSM) for the launch of Dr. Kenneth Craycraft’s, the James J. Gardner Family Chair of Moral Theology and Associate Professor of Moral Theology at MTSM, latest book Citizens Yet Strangers: Living Authentically Catholic in a Divided America. The event will take place on Tuesday, April 16 starting at 7 p.m. in the Bartlett Center at MTSM.
Citizens Yet Strangers is being published by Our Sunday Visitor Publishing and will be released on March 11. It is available for preorder here.
Citizens Yet Strangers resets the framework of how we engage with politics as Catholics. Author Kenneth Craycraft explains how Catholic theology transcends partisan politics, and he challenges Catholics to move away from the individualist liberal impulses of American political identity, whether on the left or the right. Avoiding the common clichés that prevent us from examining the role our faith should play in our public actions, this book dives deeper into the very way we orient our moral and political lives.
The book launch is open to the public and admission is free.
