"Values and Voices" brings together leading scholars to write on pressing issues of our day

Tat-siong Benny Liew, the Class of 1956 Professor in New Testament Studies and professor of religious studies at the College of the Holy Cross, recently penned a letter addressed to president Biden, vice president Harris, and members of Congress as part of the “American Values, Religious Voices: 100 Days, 100 Letters” campaign.
