Two Christians in a Fishbowl

Prof. Franz Jozef van Beeck, S.J.
Cardinal Cody Professor of Theology
Loyola University, Chicago


Prof. Harvey Cox
Hollis Research Professor of Divinity
Harvard University

Franz Jozef van Beeck and Harvey Cox present an ecumenical discussion on the ‘pros and cons’ of each other’s denomination. Each presents the Church that they belong to (Catholic and Baptist). They first present the strengths and weaknesses of their own tradition and then discuss the same in the other tradition. Both provide theological presentations as well as personal stories of how they got to their denomination and how they relate to the other’s denomination.
