The Relevance and Challenge of C. S. Lewis - Mark Brumley

Interest in Lewis is on the upswing, again, especially with the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe movie and portents of many more in a series of Chronicles of Narnia feature films. What, then, to make of this highly influential, Belfast-born Christian thinker and writer, and his impact on modern Christianity?  Read more...

The Resurrection - Charles E. Rice

That Christ rose from the dead is an article of our faith. But we tend to overlook the fact that the resurrection was an historical event, just as much as the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  Read more...

The Return of Religion - Roger Scruton

Faced with the spectacle of the cruelties perpetrated in the name of faith, Voltaire famously cried ‘Ecrasez l’infâme!’.  Read more...

The road to same-sex marriage was paved by Rousseau - Robert Reilly

Ineluctably, the issue of "gay" rights is about far more than sexual practices. It is, as lesbian advocate Paula Ettelbrick proclaimed, about "transforming the very fabric of society . . . [and] radically reordering society's views of reality."  Read more...

The Role of the Inquisition in Europe - Maria Colonna and Cat Clark

Before discussing inquisitorial courts, it is important to have an understanding of the history and context of these courts.  Read more...

The Roots of Law - J. Budziszewski

Talking with our nonbelieving neighbors is not as hard as we sometimes think. Not even the pagan has completely lost his common sense. By God's common grace, there are certain things we can't not know — things that every human being knows at some level, even if he pushes them down and hides them under a false bottom. How then, should Christians engage the culture in the Public Square? One thing they should not do is argue for biblical principles using the Bible. To do so would be, in fact, to act unbiblically.   Read more...

The Sacraments - PETER KREEFT

The Scott Hahn Conversion Story - Scott Hahn

Here following is the transcript of a talk given by Scott Hahn outlining his journey of faith, a journey that took him from being a fervent Presbyterian minister and Professor of Theology at a major Protestant seminary to become a Roman Catholic Theologian and internationally known apologist for the Catholic Church.

The Splendor of the Catholic Church - Scott Hahn

Sometimes we see the Church in less than holy conditions. We see ourselves, we see other people, we see priests and sometimes we see bishops whose lifestyles are not up to the Gospel standard. Yet as Chesterton said, "The Catholic faith even when watered down can still boil the world to rags." The Catholic Church is strong with divine power. This is manifest in so many ways; you can see the splendor of the Church. Let me just take you through a few of the steps that I took in discovering the splendor of the Catholic Church.   Read more...

The Surprising Fact of Morality - Dinesh D'Souza

Evolutionists have some ingenious explanations for morality. But do they work?  Read more...

The Ten Commandments - Grace MacKinnon

Dear Grace, My son and I were discussing the importance of the Ten Commandments and how they are to be used as a guide. He says they are part of the Old Testament and therefore we need not focus that much on them. His attitude towards them is that they are just a lot of "Do Nots." Can you help me explain why God gave us these commandments and why they are still important for us today?  Read more...

The world needs a redeemer - Father Raymond J. de Souza

After every act of creation, the Book of Genesis sings the refrain: "And God saw that it was good."
