A different take on the Crusades. In one sense, GraceNetRadio.com is an outgrowth of WAFG, founded by the late D. James Kennedy. Whenever Dr. Kennedy was asked about the Crusades, he would something like, “Which ones? The ones where the Muslims took over half of the Christian lands, killing many along the way or the ones where the Christians finally responded in force 450 years later?” Steve Weidenkopf, a professor at a Catholic college and the author of The Glory of the Crusades, joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss a politically incorrect approach to the Crusades. Of course, the Crusaders did some bad things in the name of Christ that we are still apologizing for. But it’s helpful to understand their historical context. www.catholicanswers.org.
