Kresta in the Afternoon – October 25, 2016 – Hour 1

+  How to Defend the Faith Without Raising Your Voice (full hour)

  • Description: It is about winning friends, not arguments. It is about shedding light, not heat. It's about reframing the argument so hearts can be opened and minds can be inspired. Austen Ivereigh offers a new sort of apologetics. It is the fruit of a group of speakers and experts brought together by a single idea: to make sure that Catholics and the Church were represented properly in the media when Pope Benedict came to visit the UK in 2010. Their original and thoughtful approach helped make that visit a triumph and now it can be expanded for a much broader use. Austen joins us.
