First Things: The Moral, Social and Religious Challenges of the Day
Each year a national figure is invited to give a lecture on a topic of burning contemporary importance. Cherie Booth writes about a Catholic perspective on human rights. Charles Moore, former editor of The Daily Telegraph writes about witnessing to the truth and personal courage in public life. George Weigel, best selling biographer of the present Pope discusses the free and virtuous society drawing on catholic social teaching, and the book concludes with a chapter by Gyles Brandreth on reinventing childhood.
The topics are varied but the underlying theme is the dignity of the individual.
