PETE: For those who do not know you, prior to 2012 you were an active blogger on the Patheos Atheist channel. In 2012 you converted and moved to the Catholic channel. Can you tell readers who have not read your book yet about your conversion?LEAH LIBRESCO: I can give a short summary – I have space for more details in the book.  I grew up as an atheist and the way I made sense of ethics was very rule-based (deontology).  As I grew older and started reading more philosophy, I switched to und … [Read more...]

PETE: Being a convert to Catholicism myself, I enjoy hearing conversion stories of others. Can you share your own conversion story with those who have not read your book yet?SHAUN MCAFEE: Sure, and thanks for asking. My journey began small.

CBB Interview with Daniel Burke

Daniel-Burke

PETE: What inspired you to work on your Navigating the Interior Life series?DANIEL BURKE: Well, I didn’t have the series in mind when I wrote the first book, Navigating the Interior Life – Spiritual Direction and the Journey to God. In fact, the first book was a bit of a surprise success. It won the best Catholic book of 2012, beating out Pope emeritus Benedict’s Infancy Narratives. Frankly, anything Pope Benedict writes is far more important than anything I will ever write. However, I was g … [Read more...]
