Prof. Trent Horn, a staff apologist for Catholic Answers and an Adjunct Professor of Moral Apologetics at Holy Apostles recently published an essay in the most recent issue of the National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly that is titled, “Abortion and Good Samaritan Arguments.”

 

Prof. Horn directly challenges those defenders of legal abortion who “claim that even if the human fetus is a human being with the same right to life as an adult, abortion is not necessarily morally impermissible” because they attempt to “argue that abortion can be considered a form of indirect killing that results from the refusal to provide life support through one’s own body, which another person has no right to receive.” Horn faithfully explains that while “Catholic moral theology does not require people to donate organs against their will, this principle does not justify direct abortion.” National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 18.3 (Autumn 2018): 435-442.

 

 

Dr. Michela Ferri, Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at Holy Apostles, recently released a new book entitled, “The Reception of Husserlian Phenomenology in North America”

 

“This book presents a historiographical and theorical analysis of how Husserlian Phenomenology arrived and developed in North America. The chapters analyze the different phases of the reception of Edmund Husserl’s thought in the USA and Canada. The volume discusses the authors and universities that played a fundamental role in promoting Husserlian Phenomenology and clarifies their connection with American Philosophy, Pragmatism, and with Analytic Philosophy.” Springer 

 

 

 

Fr. William Mills, Adjunct Professor of Sacred Scripture at Holy Apostles, has recently released his memoir entitled: Losing My Religion: A Memoir of Faith and Finding
“After four years of college and six years in seminary, William Mills was ready for a parish–or so he thought. He didn’t realize much of his time would be endless discussions about bagels and coffee, digging ditches, and parking lot condom patrols.

 

For six years, community life was just humming along. Then disaster struck. Mills’ life came crashing down when nearly a third of his congregation left in a public power play, causing him to question his faith in himself, in the church, and in God. Marva Dawn, a noted writer of spirituality and ministry, said that being a pastor is like being peppered with popcorn: after a while, you just get tired of it, pack your bags, and move on. However, as Mills himself says, ‘I was either too stubborn or stupid, so I stayed.’

 

Losing My Religion is about the ups and downs, ins and outs, choices and challenges of being a pastor in the twenty-first-century church. It’s also about the redemptive power of community life and finding healing and wholeness in a broken world.”
