Contributor

Luke Lancaster is a cradle Catholic from Florida who dove into Scripture and apologetics in high school, when some Protestant family friends were trying to get his family out of Catholicism using the Bible.  In college, he took every Scripture course available and led his campus apologetics club.  He received his B.A. in theology at Ave Maria University and is working on his M.A. in Scripture at the Augustine Institute. Luke currently is the director of Biblical Apologetics at the St. Peter Institute (stpeterinstitute.com) and host of the Catholic Challenge apologetics show on Maria Vision USA.
