Welcome! I am Dr. Douglas Beaumont – an author, professor, speaker, blogger, armchair philosopher, and back-seat theologian. This is where I come to ponder, vent, and occasionally provide something of intellectual substance. I earned a Ph.D. in Theology from North-West University and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary where I taught Bible and Religion for ten years before becoming Catholic.
In the menu above, you’ll find my blog, external articles, papers, etc. plus my speaking and teaching information. To the right, you can sign up for the site’s newsletter or Facebook updates, as well as resources that you should definitely purchase in mass quantities.
Note: Although I use a BLOG template, I close comments pretty quickly because (a) I find the combox discussions on most blogs tedious, (b) this is a personal site, not a public platform, (c) I do not like having my thoughts challenged at all ever in any way, and (d) because of this.
“The most ridiculous thing in the world is a Ph.D. in theology,
an oxymoron if one ever existed.”
– Frank Schaeffer
“Your mother is an oxymoron.”
– Doug Beaumont
You’re still reading? Nice! Here’s a bonus fact: the script in the header is an exhortation to learning that I took (almost completely out of context) from Dante’s Inferno (III:14-15). It reads: “Here must all distrust be left behind; here all cowardice must die.”
