I am 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 writings (articles, books, papers, etc.) plus speaking and teaching information. To the right, you can sign up for the site’s Facebook updates or its (rare) newsletter, as well as resources that you should definitely purchase in mass quantities  – such as my latest book:


“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.”
