Dr. Lakeland received his Licentiate in Philosophy from Heythrop Pontifical Athenaeum, an MA from Oxford University in English Language and Literature, a Bachelor of Divinity degree from the University of London, and his PhD in religion from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He is the author of some 35 scholarly articles and 8 books, the most recent of which are, Catholicism at the Crossroads: How the Laity Can Save the Church (Cotinuum, 2007), which also won an award from the Catholic Press Association and Church: Living Communion (Liturgical Press, 2009). He will be the first speaker in our Vatican II @ 50 series.
