Forums on Faith and Work: Phil Klay
When Phil Klay served as a U.S. Marine in Iraq in 2007 and 2008, the reality of war confronted him with difficult questions about his ideals and his Catholic faith. Returning to the United States, the fact that many people went about their daily lives without thinking of the conflict in Iraq confronted him with questions about what it means to be an American citizen during a time of war. Klay will discuss how his time in Iraq impacted his faith and how his faith has helped him engage the difficult questions, while encouraging all of us to reflect on how we ourselves are engaging – or sidestepping – those questions. Phil Klay is the author of Redeployment, a powerful collection of short stories that takes readers to the front lines of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Redeployment won the 2014 National Book Award for Fiction.
