William T. Cavanaugh

William Cavanaugh's work has long been focused on the interaction of religion and society — two categories, he says, that are often artificially separated. The church is always in the world, shaping the world (and the world is, often tragically, shaping the church). When Pope Francis, in a 2013 interview, shared his vision of the church "as a field hospital after battle," Cavanaugh embraced that metaphor and began to extend it. In his new book Field Hospital, he once again explores the place of the church in world, calling it to heal the world's material and spiritual wounds.

The Book of Zechariah

Cavanaugh is Professor of Catholic Studies and Director of the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology at DePaul University. He has written many books, including Being Consumed and Migrations of the Holy, and his books have been translated into five other languages. He holds degrees from Notre Dame, Cambridge, and Duke, and he is a frequent lecturer and contributor to numerous journals.
