William Cavanaugh

William Cavanaugh is an EP endorser and coeditor of our Christian Practices of Everyday Life book series — was recently interviewed by Godspy.com. Cavanaugh is introduced with these words:

“We’re sure some people would be surprised to learn that there are Catholic thinkers doing original, even radical, theology who aren’t embarrassed by Church authority or teachings. But they shouldn’t be. In fact, not only are these thinkers orthodox in their beliefs, they’re actually getting their radical ideas from within Catholic tradition — from sources like the Church Fathers. And rather than subverting the Church, these new ideas instead are aimed directly at the most entrenched secular interests — like money, sex and power. It’s a refreshing change.”
