Catholic Connection – November 23, 2020 – Hour 2

Dr. Joseph Stuart discusses his new book “Rethinking the Enlightenment: Faith in the Age of Reason.” Gail Buckley on ‘listening for God.’

Segment 1 – Intro and News

Segment 2 – Rethinking the Enlightenment: Faith in the Age of Reason

In Rethinking the Enlightenment, Dr. Stuart demonstrates that the three primary strategies Christians employed during the Enlightenment — conflict, engagement, and retreat — are time-tested methods that should be employed in our own anti-Christian age. Conflict without engagement is senseless; engagement without conflict is weak; and without retreat, both strategies lack wisdom. If we pursue all three today with the help of the Holy Spirit, then a tough, intellectually sophisticated, and evangelically oriented Christianity can emerge — just as it did in the tumultuous Age of the Enlightenment.

Joseph T. Stuart, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of History and Fellow of Catholic Studies at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota. His research and publications concern the life and work of cultural historian Christopher Dawson, the cultural history of the Great War, and the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century.
