The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos
An Evening with Sohrab Ahmari
September 27, 8:00 PM - J.C. Williams Center - The Gallery

Join Franciscan University for a talk by Sohrab Ahmari on themes from his book The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos. 

In The Unbroken Thread, Ahmari grapples with fundamental questions such as—What is freedom for? What do we owe our parents, our bodies, each other? Is God reasonable? He offers an inspiring message on the need for Christianity and tradition, and he reminds the postmodern world that faith is essential for freedom. 

A convert to the Catholic faith, Ahmari is the op-ed editor of the New York Post, a contributing editor of the Catholic Herald, and a columnist for First Things.

“ Sohrab Ahmari offers more than a vivid and learned defense of traditionalism. With fatherly love, he leads his son— and us—on a fearless consideration of life’s big questions, taking thinkers of many historical times and circumstances as interlocutors. Along the way, he recovers truths about the nature and flourishing of the human person—truths seemingly in danger of being forgotten in our contentious and uncertain times.”

– Cardinal Timothy Dolan Archbishop of New York
