November 16, 2020

Trent Horn vs Steve Christie

In this bonus episode, Catholic apologist Trent Horn and Protestant apologist Steve Christie (author of Why Protestant Bibles Are Smaller) debate whether Protestants have the correct old testament canon.


Steve Christi: I graduated from a Catholic college, where I converted to a Protestant in August 2004. I also earned a Bachelor’s degree in psychology & a Master of Business Administration. I was the Chairman of the Missions Committee at my former church. I have spoken at several churches in the northwest Ohio, northeast Ohio, & southeast Michigan areas on the canon of Scripture, as well as the keynote speaker on the 500-year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. I was a guest on Reason & Theology (a Catholic YouTube ministry), and later I debated Gary Michuta on the canon. I have been interviewed on Christian television & radio. I have been teaching home Bible studies for 13 years, and the author of two books: “Why Protestant Bibles are smaller” & “Not really of us: why do children of Christian parents abandon the faith?” I currently worship at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Toledo, Ohio.

Trent Horn: After his conversion to the Catholic faith, Trent Horn earned master’s degrees in the fields of theology, philosophy, and bioethics. He serves as a staff apologist for Catholic Answers, where he specializes in teaching Catholics to graciously and persuasively engage those who disagree with them. Trent models that approach each week on the radio program Catholic Answers Live and on his own podcast, The Counsel of Trent. He has also been invited to debate at UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, and Stanford University. Trent is an adjunct professor of apologetics at Holy Apostles College, has written for The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly, and is the author of nine books, including Answering Atheism, The Case for Catholicism, and Why We’re Catholic: Our Reasons for Faith, Hope, and Love.
