MORE ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Gil Bailie is a founding member of the Colloquium on Violence and Religion, a member of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars, a Fellow at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, founder and president of the Cornerstone Forum, and author of Violence Unveiled: Humanity at the Crossroads (1995) and God’s Gamble: The Gravitational Power of Crucified Love (2016).

His formal education was completed in 1968 with the J.D. degree of the University of Tennessee, but Gil has never practiced law. Gil insists that he is not an academic, yet he has undertaken something that is significantly more difficult: to foster and institutionalize a conversation outside the academy, on a national and international scale. 

Gil acts upon his conviction that “Even an imperfectly sanctified life ... can foster a respect for Christianity by exercising the intelligence which faith awakens and by summoning the theological, cultural, moral, and anthropological arguments that render Christian faith intelligible.”

In his talk, Gil Bailie will help us see the tremendous challenges facing today’s clergy as an opportunity to deepen our own faith, give ourselves more fully to Christ, and earn “our place in the story.”
