Rekindling the Intellectual, Spiritual, Creative legacy of Christians in Culture

cw-angelsdemons_teaserposterHost Dick Staub and guests Adrian Wyard, founder of counterbalance, a website exploring issues of faith and science; Jennie Spohr, Presbyterian pastor & frequent co-host of TKM; Dr. Bryan Burton, theologian and gadfly of faith & culture, join in a rollicking exploration of the best-selling book by Dan Brown, also released as a film in May 2009. The storyline is as follows: When world-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to his first assignment to a Swiss research facility to analyze a mysterious symbol -- seared into the chest of a murdered physicist -- he discovers evidence of the unimaginable: the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the most powerful underground organization ever to walk the earth. The Illuminati has now surfaced to carry out the final phase of its legendary vendetta against its most hated enemy -- the Catholic Church. Langdon's worst fears are confirmed on the eve of the Vatican's holy conclave, when a messenger of the Illuminati announces they have hidden an unstoppable time bomb at the very heart of Vatican City. With the countdown under way, Langdon jets to Rome to join forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and mysterious Italian scientist, to assist the Vatican in a desperate bid for survival. Embarking on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that snakes across Rome toward the long-forgotten Illuminati lair...a clandestine location that contains the only hope for Vatican salvation.

  1. Hey Dick,

    I always enjoy your podcasts and look forward to a new one. One suggestion: this subject could really have used a Catholic on your panel. If you don’t know Mark Shea, who lives in Seattle, you should get to know him. He would be a great addition to your show when you are touching on subjects relating to Catholicism.

    Keep up the good work.

    Regards,

    Jim
