Listen to our exclusive interview with Edward Jones (foto right), winner of the Pulitzer Prize for his “A Known World,” a book he developed in his head until he got fired from his “day job” and decided to out what was in his head on paper.

People who get rankled when I talk about popular culture as the “mediator” of today’s spiritual journey might find it interesting to hearIslamic art described as a mediator. Before my first trip to the Middle East I stopped in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to visit the Islamic wing. It forever changed and enriched my naƒ¯ve assumptions about Islamic culture.

Ten years ago Kurt Cobain took his own life, but his legacy lives on. Also ten years ago, Rwandaengaged in a countrywide genocide that often pitted Christian against Christian today some are converting to Islam as a result.

Also don’t miss our exclusive report, direct from an Islamic country, of Muslims seeking Jesus after seeing the Passion. AND read the interesting article on the Passion’s artistic impact on American Protestants.

And Nicholas Kristof continues to enrage pro-lifers with his emotive appeals on behalf of abortion.

Remember, “these are the best of times and the worst of times, but they are the only times we have.” (For Now).
