Dr. Karin Öberg – Former Swedish Lutheran and Anglican

March 1, 2022 No Comments

Dr. Karin Öberg was raised in the Swedish Lutheran Church, but around the time of her Confirmation, she began to consider herself more of an agnostic. She went on to study astrochemistry, and along the way, met fellow Christians who introduced her to C.S. Lewis, and by extension, Anglicanism. That led her to G.K. Chesterton, who was one of the main figures who helped shape her understanding of the God who created the universe she was studying, and also deeply influenced her decision to enter the Catholic Church.
