On Tuesday, April 4, Holly Ordway will present "Not
God's Type: From Atheism to Catholicism."
Dr. Holly Ordway once thought she was 'not God's type' - an
atheist professor hostile to Christianity, but she discovered that
following the truth led her on an unexpected journey. In this talk,
she shares her journey of faith, from atheism, to becoming a
Protestant, to encountering the fullness of the truth in the
Catholic Church. Her story shows what it's like to move from
outside the Faith to inside, and provides encouragement and
insights for those who are helping others to 'come home' to the
Church as well.
This event is co-sponsored by CDI and the Division of Philosophy
and Religious Studies.
This is a FYE College Connection event.
