Originally from Portland, Oregon, Jason Bach has been drawing cartoons for as long as he can remember. He graduated in 2007 from Oregon State University, where he drew a daily strip for the student newspaper. More recently, he was named ‘Best Comic Cartoonist’ in 2012 by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. He currently lives as a Catholic in a sea of Protestants at Princeton Theological Seminary, where he is pursuing a Masters of Divinity.

When I saw it released yesterday and a couple stories already on New Advent expounding its major points, I felt shockingly behind. Had I missed something important over the weekend? How could I not be in the loop […]
As the screening for Mary of Nazareth approached, I was in the grips of anticipation. I was even worried last night that I might not be able to attend when my son seemed to be developing an illness. Happily, he was all better this morning and I had the chance to watch it. Mary of […]
This Fall marks a decade since I entered the sophomore year of college, no longer a seminarian.
