Our 2006-2007 Myser Fellow, Matt Levering, recently gave an interview to the blog Vox Nova. He reflects on the vocation of a Catholic theologian, the relationship between academic theology and popular apologetics, and his forthcoming book on predestination.

The task of contemplating and handing on the faith is the central labor of the theologian. Only in this way can a sense of revealed truth be retained."
