James V. Schall, SJ is professor emeritus at Georgetown University, Washington, DC.
"The variety of his interests constitutes an ordered harmony whose center is not easily grasped yet which animates the whole To read Schall is to inhabit a fecund and original mind that invites us to view God, the world, and its creatures as one would seek to see afresh the facets of a gem by turning it over and over in the light. That is, to read Schall is to be invited into an education into a way of thought and a way of being."--Thomas Smith - Villanova U, The Review of Politics ""This book is a collection of Schall's recent essays . . . It should be of interest to all learned Catholics, political theorists of almost any stripe, and anyone curious about the place of religion in the modern world."--Richard Avramenko, associate professor of political science, University of Wisconsin-Madison"--
