For the second Ignited by Truth 2012 show, we talked to Dr. Michael Barber, author and Professor of Theology, Scripture & Catholic Thought at John Paul the Great Catholic University, and Johnny Garcia, founder of Sober for Christ.
Michael Barber, Ph.D., at the age of 13, after listening to a couple of lectures given by Dr. Scott Hahn on cassette tape, he told his father he wanted to get his Ph.D. in Theology and become a professor. Dr. Barber is now a Research Fellow for the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology founded by Dr. Scott Hahn, and is Professor of Theology, Scripture & Catholic Thought at John Paul the Great Catholic University.

He has recorded numerous CDs and DVDs and speaks extensively across the country on Scripture and the Catholic Faith. Known for his enthusiastic, engaging style, Dr. Barber is the host of the nationally syndicated radio show, Reasons for Faith Live and a frequent guest on EWTN.
