Kevin O’Brien: Former Atheist

Background: / /

August 6, 2012

Kevin O’Brien returns to the Journey Home program but in a rather different capacity – as himself.  As an actor, he has portrayed various Christian personalities as a guest.  But in this episode, Kevin discusses with Marcus the vocation of acting.  Once a self-described “strident atheist”, Kevin briefly describes his conversion through the medium of plays and the writings of C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton.  The lessons of life, particularly life as a Catholic Christian, are shared through the lens and beauty of the creative arts.
