182: The Catholic Guide to Death, Dying, and the Afterlife (w/ Dr. Randall B. Smith)

182: The Catholic Guide to Death, Dying, and the Afterlife (w/ Dr. Randall B. Smith) December 7, 2022

In this episode, I’m joined by Dr. Randall B. Smith, theologian, professor, and a Catholic convert himself, to talk about the wonderfully uplifting subject of death, dying, and the afterlife.

Actually, we have a great time.

Randall has some incredible insights in these areas and draws on history, experience, and the wisdom of the Church to help shape our understanding of how to think about, talk about, and evangelize around these difficult and strange subjects. It’s a great conversation about an uncomfortable topic!

For more from Randall check out his website. You can also find Randall’s writing over at The Catholic Thing.

Look for his book, From Here to Eternity, from Emmaus Road Publishing and available everywhere.
