To make his thought known to a wider public, Crossroads, in collaboration with CL, has established the "Giussani Series on Faith and Modernity" to annually present a specific aspect of Fr. Giussani's rich theological and pedagogical thought. The 2019 Giussani Series will focus specifically on the distinctive features of Luigi Giussani's proposal for Christian education. with Timothy P.
