RETURN TO ROME
Confessions of an Evangelical Catholic
Author: Francis J Beckwith
144pp What does it mean to be evangelical? What does it mean to be Catholic? Can one consider onself 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. In 2007, after much prayer, counsel, and consideration, Beckwith decided to return to the Roman Catholic Church and step down as Evangelical Theolocial Society president. This provocative Catholic book details Beckwith's journey, focusing ono 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 Roman Catholic, affirming his belief that one can be both.
