August 2014 Show: “Conversion and Deification”

St. Athanasius once wrote that the Son of God became man so we might become God.” What does that mean? And how does it affect the Christian’s pursuit of holiness?

Guest Father David Meconi, SJ, author and professor of early Christian history at St. Louis University, will answer those questions and more on the process of divine adoption in this lively discussion led by host Michael Hernon, vice president of Advancement at Franciscan University, and panelists Dr. Regis Martin and Dr. Scott Hahn of Franciscan University’s Theology Department.
