Sirico Parables book

For over 28 years, the Institute has worked to connect economic freedom, free enterprise, and entrepreneurship with a vibrant Judeo-Christian moral culture. Through a wide range of research publications, visual media, and educational conferences, Acton reaches millions each year with its trademark synthesis of faith and freedom. In addition to common demands for limited government and lower taxes, Acton believes that liberty is best preserved when man’s God-given dignity is recognized and respected. Only when our rights are rooted in something deeper—our intrinsic value as image-bearers of God—are they absolutely secure. Such a vision frees us from intrusive and utopian government initiatives, allowing us to produce wealth and share it with those most in need.

Please join Rev. Robert Sirico, co-founder and president of Acton Institute, and other supporters and friends of Acton on Wednesday, October 24 in beautiful downtown Fort Worth, for an evening cocktail reception, dinner and a special keynote address.
