Confessions of an Evangelical Catholic
Author: Francis Beckwith
What does it mean to be evangelical? What does it mean to be Catholic? Can one consider oneself both simultaneously? Francis Beckwith has wrestled with these questions personally and professionally. He was baptized a Catholic, but his faith journey led him to Protestant evangelicalism. He became a philosophy professor at Baylor University and President of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS). And then, in 2007, after much prayer, counsel, and consideration, Beckwith decided to return to the Catholic church and step down as ETS president.
This provocative book details Beckwith’s journey, focusing on his internal dialogue between the Protestant theology he embraced for most of his adult life and Catholicism. He seeks to explain what prompted his decision and offers theological reflection on whether one can be evangelical and Catholic, affirming his belief that one can be both.
memorable, unblinkingly honest but always alive with charity, Beckwith’s
Christian story—leaving the Catholic Church, serving the Lord as a world
class Evangelical scholar and teacher, then finally returning to his Catholic
roots while treasuring his Evangelical journey—is an unforgettable witness.
I highly recommend it.”
