The commentary which was recorded late last year first appeared in the new season on NET February 25 and April 8.
“Nerves aside, it was a great experience,” said Professor Egler. “Whether it’s teaching a room full of students or sharing knowledge across a bigger platform like on TV, the experience is a fulfilling one.”
The first episode, Sin, explores just exactly what constitutes a sin, are there degree and can we be forgiven. In Angels, Egler explored areas like, do Angels exist and what is their purpose.
“As a student of theology myself, I found talking about these topics to be rewarding and enriching,” Egler added. “Then after seeing the finished product, I think the program accomplishes the goal of discussing theology in a way that makes it less intimidating and easier to understand for all of us.”
Mysteries of the Church was nominated for a New York Emmy for its documentary style production that examines the many teachings and beliefs of the Catholic Faith.
