+  Social Science Apologetics: Resolving to Build a Better Church

  • Description: Pope Francis has challenged us to find more effective ways to bring Christ to the world. How can we do that in a way that focuses on nourishing the seeds of faith rather than lamenting why the land is barren? Can we find the answer in positive psychology? We’ll talk about it with Dr. Greg Popcak.

+  Evangelical Catholic: The Biblical and Historical Evidence that Led Me to the Church (2 segments)

  • Description: Troy Guy is one of many former Evangelical pastors who have found their home in the Catholic Church. What attracts these pastors to the Church? It turns out, there are a lot of things. For example, Protestantism is pastor-centric while apostolic Christianity is Eucharist-centric. The center of the former is a pastor and a sermon, while the center of the latter is the Real Presence of Christ. Troy joins us with a look at these reasons and more.
