4:00 – Further Up and Further In: Lewis, Tolkien and My Journey to Christ
Holly Ordway was raised in a nonreligious home and for years was an atheist academic firmly convinced that faith was nothing but superstitious nonsense. She was well-educated and had no use for Christianity’s thoughtlessness and triviality. Her views of the faith began to change when she studied the writings of JRR Tolkien and the great Christian poets. This started her down a path that eventually led her to the Catholic Church. She joins us with her story.
5:00 – An Egyptian Muslim Encounters Christ
Abu Atallah was a high school student living in Cairo when his best friend joined the Muslim Brotherhood. Abu decided to follow suit in the hopes that Allah would reward him with the grades he needed to qualify for Cairo University.

This was only the beginning of his journey to Christ. Abu joins us.
