The Hippo Lectures is a book of essays that were first given as live audience, public talks. Catholicism being a “both/and” faith, this work is both fiction and non-fiction; speech and story; serious and absurd; broadly maximal and microscopically focused. It’s singular glue, however, is the Catholic Faith. All the essays—whether about the environment, beauty, athletics, beer, sex, economics, film, or American politics, to name but a few—are viewed through a Catholic lens. Now nearly past the first quarter of the 21st century, deep into postmodernity, Catholics need books that take societal challenges head on, resisting the temptations to accommodate error, look the other way, or seek answers in the 13th century. Head on, and using postmodern tools and techniques, as we are meant to use all things, for the glory of God.  
This is that book.
