This season, we are excited to launch a new book series titled, “Catholic Ideas for a Secular World,” edited by O. Carter Snead, the William P. and Hazel B. White Director of the Center for Ethics and Culture and professor of law at the University of Notre Dame. The purpose of this series is to feature authors who will expand the influence of Catholic thought on the most important conversations in academia and the public square. The series is “Catholic” in the sense that the books will emphasize and engage the enduring themes of human dignity and flourishing, the common good, truth, beauty, justice, and freedom in a way that reflects and deepens the principles affirmed by the Church for millennia. The series is not limited to Catholic authors or even works that explicitly take Catholic principles as a point of departure. The books are intended to demonstrate the diversity and enhance the impact of Catholic thought. The series will engage a wide breadth of subject matters including philosophy, theology, political theory, law, public policy, economics, art, literature, music, architecture, as well as natural and social sciences. The first book in the series is Not by Nature but by Grace: Forming Families through Adoption by Gilbert C. Meilaender.
