Speaker: John Coverdale
Topic: St. Josemaria Escriva and His Message
We had a great evening with John Coverdale. It was wonderful
getting first hand insight into the life of St. Josemaria
Escriva. He also dispelled the many myths surrounding Opus Dei
and thoroughly debunked the Da Vinci Code. A big thanks to
John and everyone who attended. Stay tuned to find out who our
next guest speaker will be for Theology on Tap on Oct 17th.
John Coverdale is a law professor at Seton Hall University Law School in New Jersey and has been an Opus Dei numerary for more than 50 years. He worked for Opus Dei in Rome from 1960-1968 and had regular contact with St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei.
Coverdale wrote Uncommon Faith: the Early Years of Opus Dei, and is considered the leading American expert on Escriva’s life and work. He was contacted for input for the 2011 film There Be Dragons, which he said offered a “quite accurate” depiction of Escriva.

We had a great turnout for our first KofC Council 1711 Theology on Tap. We were honored to have Fr. John A. Perricone give the talk for the evening on "What Is The Meaning of Theology?" It was a great evening. We had a couple of cold ones with some great company and learned a lot. We're in the process of planning more Theology On Taps with a variety of great speakers and hope you all will join us. We're also looking forward to having Fr. Perricone return for another wonderful talk.
Fr. John A. Perricone, Ph.D., is Professor of Philosophy at Iona College in New Rochelle, New York. His articles have appeared in St. John’s Law Review, The Latin Mass, New Oxford Review and The Journal of Catholic Legal Studies.
