    251: The Problem with the Evangelical Essentials (w/ Dr. Douglas Beaumont)

    251: The Problem with the Evangelical Essentials (w/ Dr. Douglas Beaumont)

    In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by Dr. Douglas Beaumont, a former Evangelical seminarian professor and a convert to the Catholic faith, to unpack how trying to decipher the "Evangelical essentials" led to his conversion. Dr. Beaumont, a student of the late Evangelical theologian Dr. Norman Geisler, studied deeply into the history of the Church, the Bible, and tried to identify the "essentials" that all Evangelical Christians held in common. Using the Bible as the sole infa...

    250: The Christian Music Pioneer Who Become Catholic (w/ John Michael Talbot)

    In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by the legendary, pioneering Christian musician John Michael Talbot to share his incredible journey into the Catholic faith. John Michael is a natural born storyteller so you'll want to buckle up for this story; from encountering Christ in an Evangelical context as a country rock musician, to wrestling with denominationalism, questions about the Early Church, and a draw towards charismatic, mystical prayer traditions – the conversion j...

    249: The Best Biblical Case for the Catholic Church (w/ Tom Nash)

    249: The Best Biblical Case for the Catholic Church (w/ Tom Nash)

    In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by veteran Catholic apologist Tom Nash to talk about the biblical basis for the Catholic Church. How can we use the Bible to explain the origins of the Catholic Church? We dig into apostolic succession, the centrality of the Mass, Jesus' desire for Christian unity in John 17 (and how to accomplish this), and some of the Church-dividing problems with the doctrine of Sola Scriptura. Plus much, much more. Tom is a veteran apologist with a lot t...

    248: Trying to Prove Catholicism Wrong Made Me Catholic (w/ Brandon Eaves)

    248: Trying to Prove Catholicism Wrong Made Me Catholic (w/ Brandon Eaves)

    In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by the legendary Brandon Eaves to talk about his journey from Evangelical Christianity through to the Catholic Church. Brandon, who you've heard about on this show before, has an incredible story to tell. After the Catholic conversion of a close friend, Brandon began to ask questions about the Catholic Church – what would compel such an intelligent, Spirit-filled person to become Catholic, of all things. And was in Brandon's pursuit of those...

    247: The Convert Couple Shattering the Catholic Protestant Divide (w/ Caleb and Natali Perkins)

    In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by two of the most fantastic guests of all time Caleb and Natali Perkins from Shema Culture to talk about their conversion journey, their incredible ministry, and how they see the Holy Spirit dismantling the barriers between Catholics and Protestants right before their eyes. In this epic, 2-hour long conversation, Caleb and Natali unpack what it was that first drew them into Catholicism, what it was like quitting their jobs to pursue the cal...

    246: The Biblical, Old Testament Roots of Confession (w/ Dr. James Prothro)

    246: The Biblical, Old Testament Roots of Confession (w/ Dr. James Prothro)

    In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by Dr. James Prothro to talk about the historical and biblical roots of the Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation. Where does the idea of the Sacraments come from? Where do we see the roots of repentance, reconciliation, and forgiveness in the Old Testament? What about penance? And how do these historical roots connect to how Catholics practice the Sacrament of Reconciliation – commonly called Confession – today. Dr. Prothro gives a through t...

Unifying

If the church is to find the unity to which Vatican 2 calls us towards, we need for people/attitudes like Keith. He takes no low blows, just presents genuine concerns and thoughts. Keep up the great work Keith.

Catholicism made understandable

I love this podcast! It is honestly the one thing I look forward to every day during work (for now- I’m going to run out of episodes pretty soon at the rate I’m listening 😂) I just finished the first year program at Our Lady Seat of Wisdom College, which gave me access to most of the things Mr. Little and his guests discuss, but I didn’t even know where to begin to sort through it. This podcast presents the Catholic points of view in a way that is both coherent and, quite frankly, really enjoyable. A+!!!

Informative and "cordial"

I'm a Catholic revert but I was so poorly catechised that I am basically a convert and I have loved learning more about my faith from this podcast. K. Albert Little has done a great job finding excellent guests who are really able to discuss topics that are interesting to anyone, at any stage of their journey into Catholicism or for Catholics who want to understand their faith in a deeper way. Keep up the great work!
