I strive to bring Catholic theology into dialogue with other worldviews (notably Jewish, Buddhist, and secular perspectives) and disciplines (including philosophy, psychology, and law). I’m also the author of The Seductiveness of Virtue: Abraham Joshua Heschel and John Paul II on Morality and Personal Fulfillment (reprint ed., T&T Clark, 2018), and a registered attorney in New York and New Jersey.
