Dr. Donald DeMarco is a leading Canadian philosopher, writer, and pro-life lion. He is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at St. Jerome’s University, Waterloo, Ontario; a Visiting Scholar with Holy Apostles College and Seminary; and is the author of 21 books.

In my podcast interview with him, he unpacked what is to my mind the deepest mystery of all: how God’s provident care, can co-exist with human freedom. God has a plan, and we can say yes or no to it. It’s amazing, really, like the grace at work in this mystery.

I admit to my long-standing admiration of Dr. DeMarco. His books were immensely helpful to me as I was making my way back to the Catholic Church in Canada. DeMarco’s style is lyrical, easy to read, but packed with golden nuggets of truth. You have to love a Christian philosopher whose doctoral dissertation was "The Nature of the Relationship between the Mathematical and the Beautiful in Music.”

Enjoy this rich conversation on a fascinating topic.
