J. Budziszewski - Another Refugee from Anglicanism

During the 1990s, J. Budziszewski rose to prominence as one of the leading intellectual lights among Evangelical Christians in America. A political theorist with a special interest in the natural-law tradition, he was highly sought as a speaker at conferences organized by groups such as the InterVarsity Fellowship and Campus Crusade for Christ. A principal theme of his many talks to American campus groups is captured in the title of his 1999 book, How to Stay Christian in College.

For some Evangelical Protestants, then, it came as a jolt when, on Easter Sunday 2004, Budziszewski was received into the Catholic Church. After maintaining a public silence about his conversion for several months, Budziszewski agreed to tell the story to [Catholic World Report].

J. Budziszewski teaches in the departments of government and philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. His most recently books are What We Can’t Not Know: A Guide (Spence, 2004) and The Revenge of Conscience: Politics and the Fall of Man (Spence, 2004).

Via Pontifications, who inquires:

I have googled him and cannot find a first name for him anywhere. He is always simply listed as "J. Budziszewski.” Is he hiding something? Is his name, like the Tetragramaton, unpronounceable? Or is his first name simply “Jay” and he is being economical?
