Newman on Evangelizing the Nones
In post-modern society the "nones" have become our new poor. The West still commands vast markets and militaries but our culture has long been living off of borrowed moral capital with no foreseeable schedule of repayment. In Thinking as Though God Exists, Catholic philosopher Ryan Topping draws upon St. John Henry Newman's voluminous insights to present a far-ranging cultural strategy for the New Evangelization.
The conversion of secular culture requires many things - the rebuilding of the family, the recovery of our artistic traditions, the reimagining of the liberal arts, the re-establishment of local priestly vocations, and more. In this book readers discover how Newman's concept of an integrative habit of mind can help believers reconstitute and re-propose a coherent and emotionally satisfying account of faith and culture for our time.
