Saints vs. Scoundrels: Debating Life’s Greatest Questions

Benjamin Wiker
EWTN Publishing, 265 pages

It’s a very clever device: bring together two disparate thinkers from history, have them meet in the comfort of your living room, and imagine the lively conversation that might ensue. Dr. Benjamin Wiker accomplishes this by pairing the likes of Henry VIII with St. Thomas More, Ayn Rand with Flannery O’Connor, Niccolo Machiavelli with St. Francis of Assisi… you get the idea. It’s not a straight-up Socratic-method dialogue but rather is presented short story style, with Wiker’s own first-person narrative providing essential background. Fascinating and informative, it raises a few questions and provides thoughtful, penetrating answers.
