6:00 pm EDT - 7:00 pm EDT

Live Streamed

Catholic Information Center

1501 K Street NW
Washington, DC 20005 United States


Austin Ruse carefully examines how the anti-Christian forces gained power over every elite institution in America. He exposes their plans for the future and issues an authoritative call to arms, brilliantly arguing that there is no finer time to be a faithful Catholic.

The event is moderated by our Panula Chair in Christian Culture, Mary Eberstadt.

This event is open to the public and hosted both in-person and online for free. Registration is required. If you plan to attend in-person at the CIC, please review our COVID guidelines here.

About the book:

“With Ruse’s signature wit, ‘Under Siege’ reveals the good, the bad, and the downright ugly, but offers a fresh vantage point to embrace our challenges with joy and deep confidence in God, come what may.”–Carrie Gress, Author of ‘The Anti-Mary Exposed’ and ‘Theology of Home’

Decades as a Christian leader — most notably at the U.N. as president of the Center for Family & Human Rights — have earned writer Austin Ruse, once a Washington liberal with little faith, his share of defeats and triumphs. Perhaps most valuably, he has intuited keen tactical insights from his confrontations with the dark side of human nature. You come away from this groundbreaking book with the sense that Ruse knows the enemy better than the enemy knows himself.

Ruse argues that each of us is called specifically to this battle and he provides a roadmap for fighting the major challenges American Christians now face. He identifies the vulnerabilities of the Leftists who appear so dominant today, and he pinpoints Catholicism’s most potent sources of resistance.

More than anything, Ruse argues that, as dark as these days seem to be, future generations will look upon this generation with envy that they could not have been here with us in these dangerous times when everything seems so lost.

Ruse lays it all out in these simple, balanced pages. The best days could be ahead for us, but only if we accept — and stick to — this plan to rebuild Christendom.

*Event has been rescheduled from April 27th to April 26th.
