Hello, Friends —
This week I was profoundly honored to find out that in his speech at Justice Scalia’s Memorial Service, Justice Clarence Thomas mentioned reading my biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and concluded his own speech with words from the eulogy that Bishop George Bell gave at Bonhoeffer’s memorial service. Here’s a link to the video.
The Presidential Forums with Ted Cruz and Ben Carson which I had the privilege of hosting at the NRB Conference were broadcast on C-Span (click here to watch). We also aired them this past week, along with other morsels for you to enjoy! The highlights are below!
P.S. Tickets to our May 3 Socrates in the City event are going quickly–nearly 40% of the tickets were snatched up in a matter of hours! If you’d like to learn more and reserve your tickets, visit the Socrates in the City website.
