J.R.R. Tolkien: Truth and Myth - Joseph Pearce

Tolkien preserved his mother's legacy and kept the faith, not only in his life but also in his work.

Lewis to Christianity.  Read more...

Jesus Vasquez - Rev. George W. Rutler

Jim Balmer: Lifelong Conversion - Molly Mulqueen

Dawn Farm in Ann Arbor, Michigan is a place where addicts and alcoholics recover the lives they lost to drugs and alcohol. “Recover” is an innocent-sounding verb for the grueling, gut-wrenching metamorphosis that takes place in the human body and spirit as it separates from the chemical demons that possess it. But close to 75 percent of the people who undergo treatment at Dawn Farm really do reclaim their lost lives and achieve long-term recovery.  Read more...

John Paul the Great - Peggy Noonan

The pope proceeded down the line, nodding and patting, and when he got to me I jerked into a kind of curtsy-bow and touched his right hand with my hands.
