Faith Angle Forum: December 2008

The Faith Angle Forum held its semi-annual Conference on Religion, Politics & Public Life December 7-9, 2008 in Key West, Florida. The series brings together a select group of nationally respected journalists and distinguished scholars for in-depth discussions of cutting-edge issues at the intersection of religion and public life. Under the leadership of Michael Cromartie, Vice President at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the Faith Angle Forum provides extended discussion and the kind of deep reflection that is not always possible in today’s fast paced world of breaking news.
