IMG_3456 - Version 2My new book officially comes out on Oct. 28th — with a national event!

The book’s title is MIRACLES: What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life. It will be a Socrates in the City event and oddly enough, I will be the guest!

Of course we needed to find a guest host to interview me, since I couldn’t interview myself! We hoped to find someone who was as good an interviewer as Dick Cavett, but unfortunately the only person as good as Dick Cavett is Dick Cavett! And of course he “wasn’t available.” Sigh.

But then — wait a minute – he was! So if you can believe it, the master interviewer of the last fifty years — who has interviewed Robin Williams, David Bowie, Marlon Brando, Katharine Hepburn, Jimi Hendrix, Laurence Olivier, Abba, Richard Burton, Janis Joplin, Groucho Marx, Muhammad Ali,William F. Buckley, Woody Allen, John Lennon, George Harrison, Ingmar Bergman, Bob Hope, Carol Burnett, and a zillion others — will interview me on Oct. 28th. I am deeply honored by this and I very much hope you’ll join us! If Liza Minnelli shows up, you’ll be sorry you missed it!!!

If you can get to NYC, fantastic! Our ticket prices have been dramatically lowered. If you don’t believe it, click here! The best ones are selling out, so do hurry. If you cannot get to NYC, we will be Webcasting the event all across the country. Or wherever good wi-fi is available. Stay tuned to this space for details.

Today I spoke at the Nat’l Prayer Breakfast in Washington.  During my speech I gave the President a copy of my Bonhoeffer book…  Here’s the article from WORLD. Here’s one from The Baptist Press. Here’s the Catholic News Agency.  And here’s National Review.

My talk begins 35 mins in and ends with me leading the 3,500 assembled in singing “Amazing Grace”.  No kidding.

Guess who snapped this photo below?  None other than VP Joseph P. Biden, who of his own accord very graciously offered to take it for me!  Amazing.  I wonder how many photos there are of U.S. President’s taken by U. S. Vice Presidents?

0_61_320britLast weekend FoxNews analyst Brit Hume said something so beyond-the-pale that the outrage has been deafening.

Did he say Janet Napolitano was the love child of Susan Sontag and Elmer Fudd?   Did he label the POTUS a “long-legged Mack Daddy”?   Did he say that Adam Lambert was making him reconsider his position on Sharia Law?   Those things would have been offensive — but he didn’t say any of them!

Then what did he say?  Well, what he said was pretty bad, so if you are reading this aloud with kids around, you might want to tell them to go play with their Wii for a few minutes…  Okay, are they out of the room? Great.

I had the privilege of knowing Fr. Richard John Neuhaus, who passed away in January. He spoke at Socrates in the City three years ago. Robbie George, who spoke at SITC two weeks ago, offers this eloquent tribute to Fr. Neuhaus in the online version of First Things.

He Threw It All Away
By Robert P. George

In the early 1970s, Lutheran pastor Richard John Neuhaus was poised to become the nation’s next great liberal public intellectual—the Reinhold Niebuhr of his generation. He had going for him everything he needed to be not merely accepted but lionized by the liberal establishment. First, of course, there were his natural gifts as a thinker, writer, and speaker. Then there was a set of left-liberal credentials that were second to none. He had been an outspoken and prominent civil rights campaigner, indeed, someone who had marched literally arm-in-arm with his friend Martin Luther King. He had founded one of the most visible anti-Vietnam war organizations… (to read the rest of this article, click here.)
