September 24, 2007 No Comments

Francis grew up Catholic in Los Vegas. In the 1970’s, when he was in high school, he was searching for Christ and truth. His religion teachers at his Catholic school were more into talking about their feelings and were not interested in the substance of the faith. Francis began visiting a Protestant bookstore where he was introduced to Evangelical Calvinist writers such as Francis Schaeffer. He became an Evangelical himself and, after earning a Ph.D. from Fordham University, eventually be came the president of the Evangelical Theological Society. Francis talks with Marcus about his journey Home to the Catholic faith.
