Conversation: "The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos"


Location: Zoom Webinar

Ahmari Book

Join Mary Eberstadt (Catholic Information Center; Faith and Reason Institute), V. Phillip Muñoz (Notre Dame), and R. R. Reno (First Things) for a conversation on The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos (Convergent Books), with author Sohrab Ahmari and dCEC Director Carter Snead.

In The Unbroken ThreadNew York Post opinion editor Sohrab Ahmari offers twelve timeless, fundamental questions that challenge our modern certainties. Among them: Is God reasonable? What is freedom for? What do we owe our parents, our bodies, one another? Exploring each question through the life and ideas of great thinkers, from Saint Augustine to Howard Thurman and from Abraham Joshua Heschel to Andrea Dworkin, Ahmari invites us to examine the hidden assumptions that drive our behavior and, in so doing, to live more humanely in a world that has lost its way.
