A recent book by Philip Jenkins looks at a tumultuous time in history that contains lessons for believers trying to navigate today’s religious landscape.
“Crucible of Faith: The Ancient Revolution That Made Our Modern Religious World” (Basic Books, $19.99) covers a time period of about two centuries prior to the birth of Christ to a half-century after his death.
So much happened in such a short amount of time such that Jenkins refers to it as a crucible in which different world faiths were shaped.
SALT LAKE CITY — On Feb. 18, Hallmark Channel will give viewers a late Valentine’s Day gift in the form of the season five premiere of “When Calls the Heart” — a rare television show that answers many viewers’ yearning for family values in entertainment.
In Feb. 2018, I had the opportunity to interview Alfonso Moreno for “10 questions.”
Moreno has a long career in the entertainment industry that includes work on “NCIS,” “The Practice,” “The Guardian” – and many others. He is currently the showrunner for Hallmark Channel’s family-friendly hit, “When Calls the Heart.”
The book is rather short, but not necessary entirely conducive to concise and understandable descriptions of common questions about the topic. In an effort to secure quotes about popular questions that could easily fit within the narrative tone of the article, I contacted the authors for an interview.
Frederick consulted with Mackay and responded to the three questions I posed on November 05, 2016.
