MORRISTOWN, N.J. - Oct. 17, 2018 - PRLog -- Daniel B Cosacchi, Ph.D., will speak on Prophets and Prophesy on Sunday, October 28,  2018, at 3:30 PM at St. Mark Lutheran Church, 100 Harter Road, Morristown, NJ.

In the words of Fr. Richard Rohr: "Prophets, by their very nature, cannot be at the center of any social structure.  Rather, they are 'on the edge of the inside.' They cannot be fully insiders...They must be educated inside the system, knowing and living the rules, before they can critique what is non-essential..."

The first in a year-long series dealing with the role of prophets and prophecy in society, this presentation will identify some of the Hebrew prophets, the societies in which they lived, and how they might be exemplars for us today.

Dr. Daniel Cosacchi is the Canisius Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer of Religious Studies at Fairfield University where he is affiliated with the Center for Catholic Studies and the Ignatian Residential College.  He teaches courses in Christian theology and  Catholic social teaching.  Dr. Cosacchi received his doctorate in theology and ethics from Loyola University Chicago, having written his dissertation on the ecological impacts of warfare and the ramifications for Catholic social thought.  He is co-editor of The Berrigan Letters: Personal Correspondence between Daniel and Philip Berrigan (Orbis Books, 2016).  In progress is a book on the theology of Daniel Berrigan, tentatively entitled Devotedly in the Lord.
