The three key sentences in Father Sirico’s finely crafted essay that constitute the theme of this book are: “No civilization in history has survived or flourished without a religious foundation. Nor have great classical liberal thinkers neglected the spiritual dimension of man. From the writings of the late Scholastics to eighteenth-century British economists, they have always discovered a linkage between faith and freedom.”
I am honored and privileged to write an introduction to this important work from the skilled pen of an admired friend. What follows is merely a series of reflections inspired by my reading of this slender volume.
