Play, sport, and spirituality are at the heart of Fr. Patrick Kelly's talk tonight, which concerns the ways in which playing sports relates to human flourishing and openness to transcendence. His book, Catholic Perspectives on Sports: From Medieval to Modern Times (Paulist Press), discusses the participation of lay Catholics in play and sport, and the relationship of sport to the theological and spiritual. A former football and basketball player, and coach, Fr. Kelly is also one of the editors of the International Journal of Religion and Sport. "The clarity, vigor, and profound knowledge contained [in this book] will inform and fascinate anyone who is interested in the broader context of mind and society where religion evolves." - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyji.
