  1. What great news! Congratulations! I anticipate this book and being able to read it. Thank you for sharing the table of contents – it gives me an even greater sense of excitement to read your insights into Christian Humanism.

  2. Your triumvirate of Alexander Solzhenitsyn as prophet, Pope John Paul II as priest, and Ronald Reagan as king in the destruction of Communism is excellent and original: I have never found it elsewhere. It is especially striking because these three men fulfill messianic functions as Christians, truly living St. Paul’s words to ordinary Christians that they were “prophets, priests, and kings.” They also represent the three branches of Christianity: Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant. The prophet is the member of the literati, what does this mean?
