Presenter: Thomas H. Groome, STM professor of theology and religious education, and chair, Department of Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry
Toward the end of his public ministry, Jesus seems to wonder "will there be faith on earth" upon his second coming (Luke 18:8). The circumstances and challenges of our time now make this question all the more urgent, and an easy "yes" cannot be taken for granted. Rather, much depends on how and what faith we teach, and to what purpose. This presentation launched Tom Groome’s new book, which he describes as “the capstone” of his life-long work in handing on the faith.
