Event description

Description

Dr Holly Ordway once thought she was “not God’s type” - an atheist professor hostile to Christianity - but she discovered that following the truth led her on an unexpected journey. In this talk, she shares her journey of faith, from atheism, to becoming a Protestant, to encountering the fullness of the truth in the Catholic Church.
Her story shows what it’s like to move from outside the Faith to inside, and provides encouragement and insights for those who are helping others to “come home” to the Church as well.



Dr. Holly Ordway is Professor of English and a faculty member in the M.A. in Apologetics at Houston Baptist University; she holds a PhD in English from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is the author of Apologetics and the Christian Imagination: An Integrated Approach to Defending the Faith (Emmaus Road, 2017) and Not God’s Type: An Atheist Academic Lays Down Her Arms (Ignatius, 2014).
She is also a published poet, and a Subject Editor for the Journal of Inklings Studies. Her academic work
focuses on imaginative and literary apologetics, and on the writings of the Inklings, especially C.S. Lewis
and J.R.R. Tolkien.
Her current book project is Tolkien’s Modern Sources: Middle-earth Beyond the Middle Ages.
Her website is: hollyordway.com
