The Classical Theism Podcast aims to defend Catholic Christian ideas in conversation. With the help of various guests, I defend three pillars of the Catholic Christian worldview: (1) the God of classical theism exists, (2) Jesus is our Messiah and Lord, and (3) He founded the Catholic Church. We place a strong emphasis on the first pillar, defending classical theism, drawing upon the work of Thomistic philosopher Dr. Edward Feser and many others.

Thanks for listening!

    The One Creator God w/ Fr. Michael Dodds

What is meant by saying God is not "really related" to creatures? If God exercises meticulous providence over creation, does that reduce people to puppets? Fr. Michael Dodds joins us to answer these questions and more as we discuss his new book The One Creator God.
