Dr. Ahern is pleased to announce the publication of his new book, God’s Quad: Small Faith Communities on Campus and Beyond (Orbis Books, 2018) edited by Dr. Ahern and Christopher Derige Malano of the Newman Center at the University of Hawaii–Manoa.
God’s Quad explores the power and potential of small Christian communities for college and university students inside and outside academic settings. Contributors from five continents (including several groups linked to the global Catholic youth movements) offer case studies of best practices and practical tools for creating and maintaining Christian communities for young adults, both within and beyond academic settings. Toolkits include practical guides to organize weekly meetings, including guides on the review of life (see-judge-act) and spirituality of action.
The release of the book was organized with three public events at America Media in New York, Hekima College in Nairobi, Kenya and at the Jesuit Curia in Rome.
Be sure to check out this great collection of reflections by young theologians on the legacy of the Second Vatican Council.

Faced with the complexity of current and future global challenges, higher education has the social responsibility to advance our understanding of multifaceted issues, which involve social, economic, scientific and cultural dimensions and our ability to respond to them… Higher education must not only give solid skills for the present and future world but must also contribute to the education of ethical citizens committed to the construction of peace, the defense of human rights and the values of democracy.
