Prophetic Sobran

From Fr. C. John McCloskey, via the Fitzgerald Griffin Foundation:

Joe Sobran had a Renaissance mind along with a moral sense, a genial wit, and a seemingly effortless flow of felicitous phrasing. Whatever the topic, he was capable of entertaining while instructing, always conveying to the reader of his columns, articles, and essays (without the least touch of pedantry) something of the centuries—even millennia—of thought, experience, and expression underlying the topics at hand.

Read Fr. McCloskey's review of Sobran's Subtracting Christianity: Essays on American Culture and Society here.

And read Chilton Williamson's review of the book, from the March 2016 issue of Chronicles, here.
