4:00 – Crucified Again: Exposing Islam's New War on Christians
Two thousand years after St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, was stoned to death for his faith, Christians are once again being systematically persecuted on a large scale and with lethal cruelty. Their antagonists? Adherents of radical Islam. In Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians, Raymond Ibrahim documents the persecution of Christians that is commonplace in Muslim countries; explains why the mainstream media has been so quiet on the topic; and argues powerfully for greater exposure and international outcry for this crisis. Ibrahim combines a thorough knowledge of the languages and texts of Islam with up-to-the-minute reports on recent incidences of persecution in a powerful account of a tragedy the mainstream media has largely chosen to ignore. He joins us today.
5:00 – The Ear of the Heart: An Actress' Journey from Hollywood to Holy Vows
Dolores Hart stunned Hollywood in 1963, when after ten highly successful feature films, she chose to enter a contemplative monastery. Now, fifty years later, Mother Dolores gives this fascinating account of her life. Dolores was a bright and beautiful college student when she made her film debut with Elvis Presley in Paramount's 1957 Loving You. She also gave a Tony-nominated performance on Broadway. Born Dolores Hicks to a complicated and colorful Chicago family, Mother Hart has traveled a charmed yet challenging road in her journey toward God, serenity and, yes, love. She entered the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Conn., at the peak of her career, not in order to leave the glamorous world of acting she had dreamed of since childhood, but in order to answer a mysterious summons she heard with the "ear of the heart". While contracted for another film and engaged to be married, she gave up everything to become a bride of Christ. Mother Dolores Hart joins us.
