Fr Schall

SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga University’s Faith and Reason Institute presents distinguished Jesuit theologian Father James V. Schall who will discuss “On Remembering What We Know” at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 24 in the Jundt Auditorium, Room 110 in the Jundt Art Center. The free event is open to the public. Gonzaga philosophy Professor Doug Kries will give the response.

Fr. Schall, who recently retired as a professor of political philosophy in the department of government at Georgetown University, continues to publish from the Sacred Heart Jesuit Center in Los Gatos, Calif. During his 60-year career, he has written more than 30 books and hundreds of essays and articles on disciplines ranging from political philosophy to theology, sociology and biography.

In his lecture, Fr. Schall will discuss the career and works of Fr. John Navone of the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus who was a friend and collaborator to him. The lecture will focus on some of the major themes in the works of Fr. Navone, such as theology of beauty, narrative theology and the theology of failure. Pope Francis has credited Fr. Navone’s work as an influence for his own theology of failure.
