September Show:

“Faith of the Fatherless”
With special guest Dr. Paul Vitz

Sunday, September 7, at 10:00 p.m. ET
Thursday, September 11, at 5:00 a.m. ET

How do our earthly fathers and the relationship we have with them affect our relationship with our Heavenly Father? Can the lack of a father make a person predisposed to atheism? Hear the answers to these questions and more from Dr. Paul Vitz, senior scholar at the Institute for Psychological Sciences and author of Faith of the Fatherless: The Psychology of Atheism, in his discussion with host Michael Hernon, vice president of Advancement, and theology panelists Dr. Regis Martin and Dr. Scott Hahn of Franciscan University.
