A California neurosurgeon who died from lung cancer in 2015 explained in a memoir published this year what it was that compelled him to reclaim his Christian faith after embracing "ironclad atheism."
Dr. Paul Kalanithi, a neurosurgeon at Stanford's Department of Neurosurgery and a fellow at the Stanford Neurosciences Institute, died on March 9, 2015, after fighting a two-year battle with stage IV lung cancer.
Being an educated man who graduated from the Yale School of Medicine, Kalanithi earned a master's in English literature from Stanford and earned master's in history and philosophy of science and medicine from Cambridge, Kalanithi was considered to be a deep thinker who constantly pondered how "biology, literature and philosophy intersect." more >>

A lesbian Episcopal priest who believes queerness is central to the Christian tradition and has published a book that claims "queer and trans experience has vast potential to help the church be the church," is being condemned by a theologian for turning "the sin of Satan into a virtue."
"We queers exist, and many of us have lives and sensibilities that don't fit neatly into heteronormative constructs. And honestly, that's a good thing. Our perceptions of our relationships and ethical obligations are at times of a different hue from the perceptions informed by heteronormative Christian ethics. Far from an ethical deficit, that difference is often shot through with valuable insight," argues Rev. Elizabeth M. Edman's in an excerpt fom her book, Queer Virtue: What LGBTQ People Know About Life and Love and How It Can Revitalize Christianity that was published in part as an essay by the website Salonon Saturday.
Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D. a Christian theologian and speaker who serves as a permanent research fellow at the Center for Ethics and Culture at Notre Dame University, wrote in a response piece for Breitbart News that Edman misrepresents and omits important pieces of Scripture when making her arguments. more >>
I had spent my entire life searching for the truth as a young attorney under Nicolae Ceausescu's brutal communist regime. When I finally found it in the pages of the most forbidden book in all of Romania, I accepted the divine call to defend Christians and churches against unjust persecution in an otherwise ungodly land.
Many of my cases became part of the U.S. Department of State's reports on human rights violations in Romania. For this act of treason, I was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, placed under house arrest, and came within seconds of being executed under the orders of Ceausescu himself!
It was late at night, and I had just returned to my office after a long day in court. I was exhausted. In addition to a full docket of cases, I had been followed to work that morning by Ceausescu's secret police. They had been tailing me for weeks. more >>
