Kresta in the Afternoon – June 2, 2021 – Hour 1

Alan Sears discusses the faith of President Eisenhower and Fr. Thomas Joseph White opens the mystery of the Incarnation.


The Faith of Eisenhower

June 6 is the anniversary of the Normandy Invasions, one of the most important battles of the century. The invasion was led by Supreme Allied Commander Eisenhower, who would later go on to the White House. While there have been many biographies of Eisenhower’s military and political career, none have looked deeply at the role his faith played in both his personal and public life – despite the fact that he was the only US president to be baptized while in office. We take a look with Alan Sears.

Alan Sears is the co-author of The Soul of an American President: The Untold Story of Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Faith. He’s an ardent student of history and the founder of Alliance Defending Freedom, which he led as president, CEO, and general counsel for twenty-three years. Under his leadership, ADF and its allied attorneys–which now number more than three thousand in forty-four nations–played important roles in more than fifty victories at the US Supreme Court and seventeen victories at the European Court of Human Rights. Alan has served in numerous positions within the Reagan and Bush administrations..

The Incarnate Lord

Christology is the study of who Christ is, but often times modern ‘Christologies’ are composed without a deeper attention to traditional metaphysics: the classical philosophical understanding of reality that comes to us from Aristotle and Aquinas. We talk with Fr Thomas Joseph White about the mystery of the Incarnation and God becoming Man.

Thomas Joseph White, OP is associate professor of systematic theology, Dominican House of Studies. He’s the author of many books including The Incarnate Lord: A Thomistic Study in Christology
