Faith - PETER KREEFT

Faith, hope, and charity are, quite simply, the three greatest things in the world; the three legs of a single tripod that supports the whole Christian life.  Read more...

Faith and Reason - Peter Kreeft

This chapter asks the basic question, is it worth while even discussing religion. Does talking about religion get us anywhere. Written as a series of dialogues between a Christian and sincere non-Christian, "Yes and No" is Peter Kreeft's answer to so many religion texts which leave students thinking of religion as little more than a dull and boring rehash of things everyone already knows.  Read more...

Freedom and Suffering - Donald DeMarco

The most common objection to God’s existence is the presence of human suffering. How can there be a God when there is so much suffering in the world? This searing question is reiterated endlessly. Yet, it is an objection that has no legs at all on which to stand.  Read more...

Freedom is Scary - Mark Shea

You know the drill: The Church is a prison that shackles the hearts and minds of people who yearn for the freedom to think and act as they please.   Read more...

Freewill and Predestination - Peter Kreeft

If God is not love but only knowledge, then it is difficult or impossible to see how human free will and divine predestination can both be true. But if God is love, there is a way.  Read more...

From Jewish Passover to Christian Eucharist: The Story of the Todah - Tim Gray

Scholars have often wondered how the practice of Christian Eucharist could have arisen from the Lord’s Supper, which occurred in the context of the Jewish Passover. Since Passover occurs only once a year, how is it that the Christians got the notion that they could celebrate Jesus’ sacrificial meal weekly, if not daily?  Read more...

From Utah with Love - Steve Clifford

I am often asked what caused me to open myself to the Catholic Church and leave Mormonism. Another question I am frequently asked is how to go about speaking to Mormons. What will help to open their eyes to the truth?  Read more...

Fundamentalists - PETER KREEFT

To help Catholics understand their faith better and to halt the "soul drain," of Catholics leaving the Church for fundamentalist groups Peter Kreeft provides answers to the fundamentalist challenge. Here are five points of conflict.   Read more...

Gimme That Ol' Time Religion - Benjamin Wiker

The creators of the animated series South Park are treating audiences to another satire of religion, a Broadway musical comedy called "The Book of Mormon" which they describe as "an atheist's love letter to religion." David Brooks in the New York Times, pinpoints why this love letter gets it all wrong.   Read more...

God is for grown-ups - Fr. Raymond J. de Souza

God or Atheism — Which Is More Rational? - Peter Kreeft

God vs. Science Isn't the Issue - William McGurn

When the poet Matthew Arnold wrote of faith's "melancholy, long, withdrawing roar," the thought was that scientific inquiry had forever undermined claims to certitude. In hindsight we see Arnold was only half right.  Read more...

God, the Hound of Heaven - David Scott

‘Everything comes from love,’ St. Catherine of Siena reminds us. This is the great paradox of our Father’s love. In a world filled with evil and innocent suffering, how can we believe in God’s love? These questions gnawed away at Eugene O’Neill. ‘His whole life’ was consumed with ‘the problem of evil and God’s permissive will,’ Dorothy Day said.  Read more...

Going All the Way - Andrew Klavan

An atheist "converts" to intelligent design. Why so timid, Mr. Flew?  Read more...

Going to Heaven - Grace McKinnon

Dear Grace, I come from a large Catholic family and some of us attend Mass every week. There are also those who never go, but they are not bad people. They are prayerful, but never attend church. What I want to know is, if they died in the state in which they are living, would they go to heaven even though they never attended church, yet lived as good people?  Read more...

Good Pope, Bad Pope: Their Lives, Our Lessons - Mike Aquilina

The popes whose stories you'll read here show us how Christ kept his promise to his bride, the Church, not only in her health but also in her sickness. That's why, even in its darkest moments, the story of the papacy is a story of triumph. And that's why it's worth knowing these twelve popes.  Read more...

Goodness and Godliness go hand in hand - Barbara Kay

Grace Alone - DEAL W. HUDSON

As one who was born and raised a Protestant and became a Southern Baptist minister before entering the Roman Catholic Church, I am perplexed by the evangelical Protestant charge that Catholics misunderstand salvation.  Read more...

Great God, It’s the Great God Debate - John O'Callaghan

On April 7, a sold-out audience in Notre Dame’s Leighton Concert Hall watched this year’s edition of “The God Debate.” Before a packed house, “New Atheist” Sam Harris and philosopher of religion William Lane Craig argued whether God is the source of morality.  Read more...

Handling Issues of Conscience in the Academy - J. Budziszewski

One doesn’t become confused about wrong and therefore start committing it; rather one commits wrong, knows it is wrong, and therefore finds a way to confuse and reassure himself about it. My personal conviction is that half of the issues of conscience in the Academy have their origin right here.  Read more...
