Dr. Richard Sherlock: Former Mormon

Background: /

April 8, 2013

Growing up in the culture of Mormonism, Dr. Richard Sherlock, was a thinker who loved the great questions of life.  It propelled him to study philosophy in college and then in graduate school at Harvard.  It was there, while taking a course in early church history, that seeds were planted in Catholicism.  Dr. Sherlock relates the journey he traveled as a professor which, interestingly, had him teaching moral theology as a Mormon at a Catholic university and today teaching predominantly Mormon students at a state university in Utah as a Catholic.  He and Marcus share reflections on the some of the contrasts of the two faiths.

    Dr. Sherlock is a man of great empathy, a trait so lacking in our world today. He is evangelizing his students with his knowledge of faith & reason. Plus with his loving outreach to others. What an asset he is to our Holy Faith.
