My name is Justin Kalan and I am a Catholic Software Engineer at Word on Fire Catholic Ministries. I run this site to share thoughts on Catholic theology and philosophy and in particular, Molinism. Some of my articles have appeared on the Word on Fire blog and can be found here.


I graduated from the University of Dallas in 2015 with bachelors degrees in both Theology (BA) and Computer Science (BS) and a concentration in Biblical Greek.

My Story

I love apologetics and sharing and defending the Catholic faith. I first got interested in apologetics in high school by listening to many of William Lane Craig’s debates with atheists. I have been deeply influenced by Dr. Craig, the first person to introduce me to Molinism. I have also been influenced by the reformed Baptist James R. White, and a number of Catholic apologists such as Trent Horn.
