“Our ambition is not to become the next establishment but to influence, directly and indirectly, the moral and spiritual outlook of the current one, turning it in directions that promote wellbeing for everyone.” –Reno
It is a sensible goal. It is an interesting book, if not brilliant. It is engaging and thought-provoking. Reno is a good thinker, though he is not Richard John Neuhaus. While I have not yet forgiven him for not being Richard John Neuhaus, I have forgiven him for being R. R. Reno. His insight is penetrating, if not his wit.
