Though not raised in any particular faith, the study of the relationship between faith and reason eventually led Dr. Joshua Hochschild to become a Christian in the Episcopalian Church. He became drawn to the Christian intellectual tradition especially, and ended up teaching at Wheaton College in the philosophy department. However, as he began to explore more of the historic Christian teachings on philosophy, especially St. Thomas Aquinas, he came to the conclusion that his true spiritual home was in the Catholic Church, a decision that would eventually cost him his job at the Evangelical college where he was teaching. Today, Dr. Hochschild teaches philosophy at Mount St. Mary’s University in Maryland.

Dr. Joshua Hochschild teaches philosophy at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland, and previously taught at Wheaton College. He came into the Catholic Church from an Episcopalian background, and is co-author of A Mind at Peace: Reclaiming an Ordered Soul in the Age of Distraction.
