Book Talk: Garry Wills discusses “Why Priests?”

Book Cover: Garry Wills, Why Priests?On Thursday, February 21st at 7pm, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Garry Wills will be at MPC discussing his new book Why Priests? A Failed Tradition. In this latest work, Wills taps into years of study and reflection to raise some key questions about his Catholic faith: why do we have priests? How did the priesthood begin? Would Christianity be better off without them? We hope you will join us for what is sure to be a fascinating evening.

To whet your appetite, here’s a video of Garry Wills sparring with Stephen Colbert on a recent episode of The Colbert Report:
