Dr. Brian Besong – Former Baptist and Presbyterian

July 21, 2020 No Comments

Dr. Brian Besong returns to the program for the first time since 2012 to discuss his journey through the Baptist and Reformed traditions to the Catholic Church. He talks about the reasons he found Calvinism so compelling at first, and the life experiences that caused his Calvinism to unravel. He also shares how philosophy understood wrongly can lead the soul away from God, but philosophy understood rightly can lead the soul toward God.

Dr. Besong is co-editor of Faith and Reason: Philosophers Explain Their Turn to Catholicism.
