First Topic – The Battle in the Trenches
Abortion is the morally defining issue of this generation. No topic receives more attention on “Kresta in the Afternoon” than that of the right to life. And as we know, this is not an academic discussion. It’s a real, tangible battle every day to save babies. We bring your attention to the battle in the trenches. Edmund Miller is here to highlight a specific need of a woman who has chosen life - A woman who walked out of an abortion clinic and now needs her decision supported.
Second Topic – The Everyday Lives of the Early Christians
By studying how the early Christians believed and lived, we can learn many valuable lessons on what to avoid and what to strive for today. The Roman world had many facets that are strikingly similar to elements of modern life. Carl Sommer presents an in-depth study of the faith and life of the early Christians in the first two centuries after Christ. Using documentary evidence and archaeological records, he reconstructs the lives of the early Christians in order to, as he says, “introduce the treasures of early Christianity to a large number of people.” We look at the lives of the early Christians and how many of them achieved a level of spiritual grandeur we can marvel at and strive for.
