11PM IN DEFENSE OF CHRISTIANITY
Richard welcomes columnist, broadcaster, author Michael Coren. In his new book, Heresy: Ten Lies They Spread About Christianity, Coren offers a passionate defense of the history, beliefs, and culture of Christianity. Exploring why and how Christians and Christian ideas are caricatured in popular media as well as in sophisticated society, Coren addresses ten common lies told about Christianity: that it supports slavery, is racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-intellectual, anti scientific and anti-Semitic, provokes war, resists progress, and is repressive and irrelevant.
GUEST: Michael Coren is the best-selling author of fourteen books, including biographies of G.K. Chesterton, H.G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, J.R.R. Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis. He is the host of the talk show “The Arena” on the SUN News Network. He also writes a syndicated column for ten daily newspapers. His most recent book, Why Catholics Are Right, was a national bestseller.
