Description: As attacks by ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups become daily news, many are asking if Islam needs an “Enlightenment” or “Reformation.” Unfortunately, both these analogies are defective. But that doesn’t mean westerners should avoid commending their history to Muslims. Daniel Philpott proposes that Islam needs a “Vatican II.” What does this mean? He’ll tell us today.
Daniel Philpott is a professor of political science at Notre Dame, where he is the Director of the Center for Civil and Human Rights. He’s an associate scholar with the Berkley Center’s religious freedom project and the author or editor of several books including “Just and Unjust Peace: An Ethic of Political Reconciliation.”
Description: Divorce rates may be down, but that’s only because so few people are getting married in the first place. Why has marriage become so elusive and hard to achieve? It’s because we have forgotten how to engage in the mutual attraction necessary for marriage. Dr. David Upham joins us with a look at the forgotten basic truths of marriage.
