The Simple Truth
Steve Weidenkopf is a Catholic husband, father of six, and grandfather of one. He's also a Lecturer in Church History at the Christendom College Graduate School of Theology in Alexandria, Virginia. His new book is: "Light From Darkness: Nine Times the Catholic Church Was in Turmoil – and Came Out Stronger Than Before," published by Catholic Answers Press at Catholic.com.
Deacon Mike interviewed Steve Weidenkopf about his book, Light From Darkness: Nine Times the Catholic Church was in Turmoil - and Came Out Stronger Than Before in this latest episode of RED-C Roundup. They address the question that Steve often gets from others, “Have things ever been as bad in the Church as they are today?” As a historian he answers this with an emphatic, “No, things have actually been much worse!” He reflects on how to learn from the lessons of history and apply this learning so as to bring about another great time of renewal in our day.
