Damian Ference as they explore the thought of Flannery O’Connor in his powerful new book, Understanding the Hillbilly Thomist.

    The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful w/ Joseph Pearce

    The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful w/ Joseph Pearce

    To explore the history of the Catholic Church is to encounter soaring heights and catastrophic depths, the grace of the Divine and the grit of our sin. At the center of this two-millennia spiritual odyssey has been the goodness of the saints, the beauty of the arts, and the pride of fallen man. How do we begin to comprehend the seismic sweep and enduring impact of our Catholic history? Join me and Joseph Pearce as we pore over his new book, The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful.
