In this issue:
This month, I would like to highlight a new CFR book, Heroic Conservatism, by CFR fellow Michael J. Gerson. Drawing from his experiences as a top adviser to President George W. Bush, Mr. Gerson argues that America needs an agenda that includes such social strategies as continued international AIDS funding, anti-poverty initiatives, and a government leadership rooted in moral values. This month's CFR Religion and Foreign Policy Conference Call will feature a discussion with Mr. Gerson on his book; I invite you to join us for that conversation.
As 2007 comes to a close, I hope you have found this newsletter and CFR's resources useful for the important work that you are doing. As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy holidays and look forward to your continued participation in 2008.
Irina A. Faskianos
Vice President, National Program & Outreach
To participate in this conference call, please email email@example.com or call Jessica Brandt at 212-434-9573. Invitations are transferable, but limited to religious and congregational leaders and scholars; please share with interested colleagues!
Author: MICHAEL J. GERSON, Roger Hertog Senior Fellow, CFR
Michael J. Gerson, former speechwriter and adviser to President George W. Bush, draws upon his experiences in the White House and argues for renewed idealism and compassion in domestic and foreign policy.
In a recent CFR symposium, religious leaders and scholars examined the role of evangelicals in U.S. foreign policy. This event was the second in a series of CFR symposia that integrate the study of religion and foreign policy, made possible by a generous contribution from the Henry Luce Foundation.
