A Catholic author says his new book on the “wisdom of tradition” is meant to be an antidote to a false notion of human freedom.
“I’m not a theologian. I’m not a philosopher,” author Sohrab Ahmari said at a May 11 event featuring his book at the Catholic Information Center in Washington D.C.
“But I can pose as a journalist questions that I think have been ignored by our contemporary cultural, social, and political arrangements,” he added.
Ahmari is the op-ed editor at the New York Post, and author of the new book “The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos.” He is an Iranian-born journalist who converted to Catholicism after living in the United States for more than two decades. His conversion memoir, “From Fire, by Water,” was published in 2016.
