Abraham Kuyper, Leo XIII and Modern Christian Social Thought
Description: At the end of the 19th Century, Dutch Calvinist statesman Abraham Kuyper and Pope Leo XIII published significant texts that set the state for the next century of Christian social reflection. They spoke to their own time but provided significant guidance to us today on principles of solidarity and subsidiarity. We’ll talk about their work with Jordan Ballor.
Jordan Ballor is a senior research fellow at the Acton Institute and the executive editor of Journal of Markets & Morality. He’s the author of several books including “Get Your Hands Dirty: Essays on Christian Social Thought and Action.”
The Dangers of the Benedict Option
Description: No one disputes the attractiveness of living outside the decadent and godless culture that dominates American life. As Christians we are obligated to keep some separation from society, but we can’t abandon it. Where do we draw the line? We’ll discuss it with John Horvat.
John Horvat is the author of Return to Order and the vice president of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property.
