Confessions of An Evangelical Catholic

St. Joseph's Communications has just released the CD, "Confessions of An Evangelical Catholic." It is an interview of me conducted by Terry Barber and Joshua Betancourt. Joshua is the co-author with Norman L. Geisler of  Is Rome the True Church?, a book in which he and Geisler critique a variety of Catholic beliefs about ecclesiology and papal authority.  Several months after the release of the book, Joshua announced his intention to seek full communion with the Catholic Church.  You can obtain the CD via St. Joseph's Communications here. The following is the description of the CD:

Why did the president of the Evangelical Theological Society leave his post and return to the Catholic Church? Find out as Terry Barber and convert Joshua M. Betancourt interview one of the most prolific former evangelicals to embrace the Catholic faith since Scott Hahn, Francis J. Beckwith.

Beckwith's answers will revitalize and strengthen your Catholic faith, or cause your non-Catholic friends/family to contemplate why they SHOULD embrace the faith. Listen to Frank persuasively yet genuinely explain …
  • What it means to be an evangelical Catholic.

  • How the works of St. Augustine impacted his life.

  • What it was like to grow up in a post-Vatican II American Church.

  • How the writings of G.K. Chesterton, William Buckley, Jr., and Blessed Cardinal Henry Newman affected his theological insights.

  • How the early Church Fathers changed his views on the doctrine of justification, and how there's more to it than mere "imputed" righteousness.

  • How books by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) affected his views on the Catholic Church.

  • How St. Thomas Aquinas shaped him philosophically.

  • Why evangelicals should embrace the fullness of faith in the Catholic Church.

  • And much, much more….
