“Faith is what gets me here. Faith is what keeps me here.”
Moral theologian, Marquette University professor, and priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Bryan N. Massingale explores the impact of religious faith both as an instrument of social injustice and as a catalyst for social transformation. In the classroom, at the lecture podium, and in his writings, Massingale draws on Catholic social thought, African American religious ethics, and liberation theologies as he addresses challenging and pressing concerns such as racial reconciliation, environmental justice, responses to terrorism, sexual ethics, and peacemaking.
Massingale is the author of numerous articles and book chapters. His book Racial Justice and the Catholic Church (2010) received a First Place Book Award from the Catholic Press Association of the United States. Scholar and advocate, former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America, and past convenor of the Black Catholic Theological Symposium, Massingale serves on multiple editorial boards and as consultant to groups such as U.S. Catholic Bishops, the National Catholic AIDS Network, and Catholic Charities USA.
