I was very pleased to speak with our contributing editor, Dr. Joseph Shaw about his very important new book, which we already reviewed a few weeks ago. Shaw demonstrates the traditional apologetic on all the most pressing issues using data which is very rarely brought to bear on these conversations, even among Trads. This is the type of scholarly analysis that we want to contribute to the Trad movement here at OnePeterFive, and so it is a great joy to find this in Shaw’s treatment. Listen to our conversation below and buy his book here.
Timothy S. Flanders earned a BA in Greek and Latin from Grand Valley State University in 2010 with special studies in history, writing and Arabic. As a result of his studies, he converted from Protestantism to Eastern Orthodoxy and began working in education among ages Kindergarten to adult. He then pursued a Masters’ Degree in Christian history and theology with the Catholic University of Ukraine. In 2013, as a result of further searching, he converted to Roman Catholicism shortly after Pope Francis was elected. In 2019 he founded The Meaning of Catholic, a lay apostolate dedicated to uniting Catholics against the enemies of Holy Church. In 2021, he became the editor-in-chief of the online journal, OnePeterFive. He is the author of three books: Introduction to the Holy Bible for Traditional Catholics, City of God versus City of Man: The Battles of the Church from Antiquity to the Present and When the Gates of Hell Prevail: What Catholics Do in Dark Times, as well as a forthcoming book about Eastern Orthodoxy, published by St. Paul Center. He lives in Michigan with his wife and six children.
