This week’s Journey Home episode was with Dr. Leroy Huizenga, a former Presbyterian theology professor who now teaches at the University of Mary in North Dakota.

Our latest Insights video is a short but pithy discussion with Dr. Peter Kreeft about why C.S. Lewis leads so many to consider Catholicism, even though Lewis himself never became Catholic.

We published Part III in Ken Hensley’s ongoing series, “Is sola Scriptura Historical?”

And Charles Hoffman kicked off a new series for the CHNetwork Blog about how he came to understand Marian theology as a convert from Judaism.
