+  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.

+  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.
