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.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
