In this talk, Dr. Daniel Cosacchi (University of Scranton) will discuss the background of how his book (and Pope Francis’s historic address to Congress) came about. In doing so, he will also touch briefly on some of the figures in the book, with an eye towards how we might all become “great American prophets” in our own time.
