James K. A. Smith on Augustine in the 21st Century

An interview with James K. A. Smith on the questions raised by his bestselling On the Road with Saint Augustine: A Real-World Spirituality for Restless Hearts (Brazos, 2019). Smith takes Augustine as his guide to problems that perplexed Augustine and still challenge us such as ambition, sex, friendship, faith, freedom, justice, parenting, and death. While explaining his own journey in the footsteps of Augustine, Smith will also explore further how others may do the same in our time.

Papers are not invited for this session.
