  1. >Buckley was most certainly one of my political/intellectual hero’s. He will be greatly missed. I am saddened of his parting. I pray that someone will rise to the occasion sometime soon to try and continue the work he so bravely and graciously began.

  2. >Friendly, but not the same. Strauss thought Religion was false, but a good thing in society. Buckley believed religion was true and a good thing in society. Strauss is probably a little more on the Order side, while Buckley is more on the Liberty side of Conservativism

  3. >Out of curiosity, what relationship is there (if any) between Buckley’s conservative intellectualism and Leo Strauss’s? I’ve read some of Strauss and would characterize him as a sort of capitalist/Platonist. What was Buckley’s bag?(Please take into consideration, bretheren and sosteren, that I’m studying to take my doctoral comps in May and can’t add any bulky books to my comps stack right now.)

  4. >BTW, excellent video link to the Charlie Rose tribute to WFB over at National Review Online (the Corner). Don’t miss it.

  5. >I grew up watching Firing Line and reading National Review. He will indeed be missed. He had the class and wit that is sadly missing in much of the conservative “spokesmen” today.

  6. > “my guilty secret pleasure of reading modern Catholic writers on spirituality, and thinking they know more of what they speak than many evangelicals.”Here, here, my dear brother. You’ve let the cat out of the bag!

  7. >He will be sorely missed. “God and Man at Yale” is one of the best commentaries on Religion and Education. All Conservatives should mourn, as he has no intellectual successor as far as I can tell.Also worth a look is his book “Nearer, My God: A Spiritual Autobiography.” As a Reformed theologian, Buckley’s book added another book, like Peter Kreeft’s The God Who Loves You and Richard John Neuhaus’ Death on a Friday Afternoon, to my guilty secret pleasure of reading modern Catholic writers on spirituality, and thinking they know more of what they speak than many evangelicals.
