Join us for a reception and discussion of The Light of Christ: An Introduction to Catholicism, by Thomas Joseph White, O. P., with First Things editor R. R. Reno. In an interview with First Things, Fr. White describes the book as an attempt to show “the deep inner intelligibility and realism of Christian truth claims” for a modern audience in a modern context, based on “the perennial teachings of the Church.”
