WATCH: An End to Incivility — David French Discusses Divided We Stand

See the recorded video of noted political commentator and author David French as he discusses his new book, Divided We Fall, with Benedictine students, Dr. Kimberly Shankman, and Dr. Joseph Wurtz on Monday, Nov. 2, at 7:00 p.m., on the Benedictine College Facebook page by clicking here.

This Election Day Eve discussion is a Gregorian sponsored event. A fellow at the National Review Institute and a staff writer for National Review from 2015 to 2019, French currently serves as senior editor of The Dispatch.

Here’s what the New York Times said about the book:

“In his admirably measured book “Divided We Fall: America’s Secession Threat and How to Restore Our Nation,” French convincingly argues that polarization is putting America on a perilous path to disunion.

“A conservative evangelical Christian who has lived and worked among secular liberals, French understands better than most that coexistence with people of radically different backgrounds and beliefs is not only possible but necessary, and that it requires a basic respect for pluralism that fewer and fewer Americans seem willing to show.”
