Tues. 2 May @ 7 pm // R. R. Reno

Theology on Tap returns May 2 at Clery’s. Our theme “After Christendom” continues with R.R. Reno, editor of First Things magazine. Reno was a longtime professor of theology at Creighton University, and he is the author of numerous books, including most recently Resurrecting the Idea of a Christian SocietyIn Resurrecting the Idea of a Christian Society, Prof. Reno argues that America needs a renewal of Christian ideals—ideals that encourage self-sacrifice, responsibility, and solidarity. Drawing on T.S. Eliot’s 1940 essay “The Idea of a Christian Society,” Reno shows how Christianity encourages “an abiding ambition for higher things” and a “moral vision” that can strengthen communities and transform America into a truly great nation. Join us at 7 pm on May 2nd at Clery’s pub, 113 Dartmouth St., near the Back Bay Station. Please note that this is a new location for our meeting, as the Rattlesnake Bar is, sadly, no more. Please direct any question to Fr. Jeff Hanson and follow us @adventboston.
