King’s College is an undergraduate institution in Manhattan.  Revitalized by Campus Crusade a decade or so ago, it was moved to the Empire State Building. The college was meant to bring Christ to Babylon, and to bring Christian students into the hurley-burley of a global city.

Today King’s announced the appointment of Dinesh D’Souza as its new President .

A talented man who has spoken up for faith in the public square, D’Souza would seem a natural choice—except for the fact that he is Catholic.

Surely we’re at an interesting juncture in American religious history when a prominent Catholic is tapped to head up an Evangelical College. A very
interesting juncture. It will be interesting to see how the Catholic thing works out.

In the meanwhile, I wish D’Souza every success.

Dear Reader,

We launched the First Things 2023 Year-End Campaign to keep articles like the one you just read free of charge to everyone.

Measured in dollars and cents, this doesn't make sense. But consider who is able to read First Things: pastors and priests, college students and professors, young professionals and families. Last year, we had more than three million unique readers on

Informing and inspiring these people is why First Things doesn't only think in terms of dollars and cents. And it's why we urgently need your year-end support.

Will you give today?
