I am an emeritus professor of Religious Studies at Regis University (Denver) where I taught for 30 years. I have occasionally been a public voice in local media.  For more than 20 years I edited a small bi-monthly magazine called Leaven, An Independent Catholic Voice in the Rocky Mountain Region.” I also wrote regularly for a now discontinued Denver Post religion blog “Hark” (denverpost.com/hark/author/jkane) and have posted several articles on the Denver Post‘s “news/religion” page (denverpost.com/author/john-f-kane).

I try to articulate “progressive- conservative” positions on religious and political issues.  Said differently, I seek to articulate both-and rather than either-or responses to contemporary concerns.  Yet I am pretty much of the left (someplace) in many such concerns, both and political.

My latest book is  Building the Human City: William F. Lynch’s Ignatian Spirituality for Public Life (Pickwick Books, Wipf and Stock, 2016)
