Franciscan Father Hilarion Kistner answers these scriptural questions: What do we know about the author of the Book of Sirach? Why does the writer of Ezekiel point out that Pharaoh was buried among the uncircumcised? How does the Church reconcile the Genesis accounts of creation with what science tells us, especially about evolution? Are we born again at baptism or is being born again a separate experience?

John Feister's guest is the Reverend Mr. Arthur L. Miller, Director of the Office for Black Catholic Ministries for the Archdiocese of Hartford. Deacon Miller is also Catholic chaplain at Capital Community College in Hartford, and president of the National Association of Black Catholic Administrators. He’s a retired businessman known nationally as a preacher and Catholic radio host, and is the author of The Journey to Chatham. This history details the brutal murder of Deacon Miller’s 14-year-old schoolmate Emmett Till, who allegedly whistled at a white woman in Mississippi in 1955. John and Deacon Miller discuss how our faith in Christ can help to heal racial divisions.
