Dr. Joseph Johnson- Former Presbyterian Pastor

Background: / / /

May 17, 2016

Dr. Joseph Johnson’s route to the Catholic Church was circuitous- he sought community with Jewish Christians, then got his seminary training in the Presbyterian tradition.  Along the way, he began to ask questions about the origins of the canon of scripture, the basis for Christian unity, and the purpose of liturgy.  Coming across the work of two previous Journey Home guests, Dr. Francis Beckwith and Devin Rose, Dr. Johnson was finally compelled by belief in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist to come into the fullness of the Catholic faith in 2012.

“The Protestant’s Dilemma” by Devin Rose is available in the CHN store.

Dr Joseph Johnson is currently a pastoral associate at Our Lady of Lourdes in the Diocese of Charleston.
