The internet is neat. Right now, at this moment, via a couple links on this blog, you can tune into two very different and yet convergent sets of arguments for why, if you are going to be a Christian, the only reasonable kind of Christian to be is Catholic. Emphasis on “reasonable”, which, for a God who says He is the Logos, is no small thing.
John C Wright, an atheist to Catholic convert, takes up the reasons he went straight to Rome when he was miraculously converted to Christ. He is as coolly logical as they come, and applies logic and philosophy to tease out the truth.
Renee Lin, an Evangelical Protestant to Catholic convert, goes after Protestantism’s soft underbelly of unspoken assumptions and ahistorical fairy tales over on her blog Forge the Roads. In a nice way, of course. She uses a staggering amount of research to expose the inconsistencies and howlers lurking in both popular and more scholarly Protestant apologetics.
Is this what the New Evangelization looks like? Cool.
