Praise for Dan Horan
“Dan Horan is blessed with that rare combination of an engaging and accessible teaching style merged with deep learning and academic insight. His listeners and readers always learn something new. They will also discover that Fr. Horan has not only enlightened their minds, but enriched their spirituality, too.” – Christopher M. Bellitto, Ph.D., Kean University
“Fr. Daniel Horan brings a new creativity and freshness to the world of theology. His presentations on Pope Francis and Francis of Assisi are both informative and inspiring. His serious scholarship is enhanced by his gift for presenting his material in an engaging and profound way.” – Anthony Ciorra, Ph.D., Sacred Heart University
“Dan Horan, theologian, sees and evaluates the Merton legacy—in the context of Merton’s substantive religious thought—with imagination and verve. Dan Horan, the friar, complements this reading of Merton with a sensibility nurtured by a spiritual tradition in Catholicism that had special appeal to Merton—the Franciscan. The listener will benefit from both perspectives in this lively and engaging series.” – Michael W. Higgins, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Catholic Thought, Sacred Heart University, and a biographer and Thomas Merton scholar.
