Timothy Radcliffe, OP, to Speak at Fordham

America readers near New York City might be interested to know that Timothy Radcliffe, OP, will be giving a lecture at Fordham on Tuesday 12 February at 5:00. The lecture will take place in Tognino Hall in Duane Library at the Rose Hill (Bronx) campus. 
As readers no doubt are aware, Fr. Radcliffe is a major figure in global Christianity and the former Master of the Dominican order. He is a warm-hearted, creative thinker who has focused on reconciling divisions within Catholicism and on putting the Catholic tradition and the world into substantial dialogue. His bestselling and award-winning book, What is the Point of Being a Christian?, has been lauded as a thoughtful, learned, hopeful, and accessible case for the meaning and importance of Christian life in the contemporary world. If you are in the area, I hope you will consider joining us at Fordham for this special event.
