A Great Conference [SK]

Making Men Moral: The Public Square and the Role of Moral Judgment is the title of an excellent conference coming up February 25-27 at Union University (Jackson, TN).

From the conference website:

Times change, but the challenge of applying moral principles to contemporary politics remains. Join several prominent thinkers as we wrestle with how to promote a healthy moral ecology in an uncertain age.
Speakers include Robert P. George, Christopher Tollefsen, Russell D. Moore, and David Novak, to name a few.

Regrettably, one of the invited speakers, Richard John Neuhaus, passed away today. His contribution to the role of religion in the public square was stellar and he will be greatly missed in the difficult days ahead.

Update: Professor Micah Watson of Union University has a helpful review of RJN's accomplishments here.
