During that time, he studied Catholicism and other faiths, eventually becoming an apologist for Catholic Answers. In his time with the apostolate from 2004 to 2013, Jim supervised the Q&A department, was a regular contributor to Catholic Answers Magazine and a regular guest on the Catholic Answers Live radio program, and wrote the book 101 Quick Questions with Catholic Answers: Marriage, Divorce, and Annulment. In addition to his many years of private study, Jim earned undergraduate certificates in philosophy and theology from John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego, where he is working toward his master’s degree in theology.
