Canavan, S.J., was a professor of political science, a leading Edmund
Burke scholar, and an essayist whose thoughts on faith, politics, and
culture earned him accolades from many prominent Catholic minds of
his time, including Robert P. George, George Weigel, Richard John
Neuhaus, and Gerard V. Bradley.
But Canavan’s appeal extended
well beyond the intelligentsia. For more than twenty-five years, he
contributed to the catholic eye newsletter, making his wisdom
accessible to the ordinary person in the pew. Fun Is Not Enough
collects all the prophetic insights catholic eye readers loved, so
that Canavan may inspire a new generation with his contributions to
contemporary debates on religious and political liberty, the dignity
of human life, and the nature of marriage.
