Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on November 5, 2018
4:00 – A Catholic Look at the Old Testament
We talked last week with Brant Pitre about an outstanding new book that looks at the 46 books of the Old Testament, examining their history, laws, stories, prophecies and how they are fulfilled by the New Testament. We continue the conversation today with coauthor John Bergsma.
5:00 – Open Enrollment Begins
Open Enrollment has begun, giving health insurance consumers a chance to ship for health plans or renew coverage through the Affordable Care Act’s marketplaces. It’s open until December 15 and new plans begin on January 1. We talk with Brad Hahn about the options Catholics have.
5:20 – The Obsession with Catholic Clergy Sex Abuse
A key point to remember during our discussion of the crisis in the Church is that the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report released this summer largely didn’t concern new incidents – it dated back more than 70 years. Nevertheless, it was presented as evidence of an ongoing epidemic of child abuse in the Church. Is there a reason for this obsession? We talk with Martin Doorhy.
