-The Great Conversation-
How should we live? - A question that lies right at the core of human identity. Its ever elusive answer has been pursued, examined and fought over throughout various traditions for millennia. The Great Conversation explores the most serious answers put forward through a weekly reading group covering a rich variety of foundational texts.
While the Great Conversation book is free, we ask a small donation to help with production costs. Books will be available at our office starting Monday, August 19th!

Convener of The Great Conversation: Dr. J. David Franks
J. David Franks received his Ph.D. in systematic theology from Boston College, and was professor of sacred theology for almost a decade at St. John’s Seminary, where he co-founded the Theological Institute for the New Evangelization.
He speaks monthly at the Thursday Men’s Breakfast, an ecumenical Union Club event, and also directs the Lincoln Forum for Human Dignity, which advances a liberal-arts and high-culture approach to reigniting civic conversation. He co-led The Great Conversation last semester, and will be leading it for the coming year.
