Dr. William Oddie: Former Anglican Priest

June 16, 2003 No Comments

Dr. Oddie was educated in a Nonconformist (Congregational) school. In rebellion, he became a self-styled atheist and secular humanist. Something of a mid-life crisis and reading C. S. Lewis brought him to faith in God through Jesus Christ. His newfound faith eventually led him to be ordained in the Church of England. Another crisis, sparked by modernist teaching and women’s ordination led him to full-communion with the Catholic Church. This episode of the Journey Home was recorded in the study of Blessed John Henry Newman at Littlemore, England.
