Patrick Coffin: From Islam to Christ With Derya Little

patrick coffin

patrick coffinThe Patrick Coffin Show podcast features weekly interviews with A-list influencers and outliers in the effort to recover the Judeo-Christian roots of the culture. Patrick is the Canadian-born former host of Catholic Answers Live, and he has raving fans around the world. He injects these fascinating interviews with his own distinctive blend of depth and levity. If you’re tired of politically correct media speak, you want to see God back in the public square, and you’re not allergic to having a laugh, this is the place to be.

Derya Little

The news media invariably give a skewed version of Islam as a world of tolerance and open-minded toward the differently-minded. Derya Little can tell you otherwise from growing up in Turkey in a 99% Muslim milieux.

Her dramatic, at times, harrowing story is told in her spiritual autobiography From Islam to Christ: One Woman’s Path Through the Riddles of God.

As you’ll learn from the interview, Derya discovered that Christianity is essentially a loving relationship with a divine Person as opposed to the Islamic idea of Allah as master and the reality of Islamic government as a theocracy.

And what a story: divorced parents; atheist worldview; living la vida loca at university; an abortion; another abortion.

Then an encounter with Christ as an evangelical — huge. Discovery of sacred Tradition and the sacraments, especially of Confession — even more huge — with a denouement of finding lasting love in the Sacrament of Matrimony and the bosom of Holy Mother Church.

  1. EWTN had another program yest .about the ongoing massive refugee problem , esp. in Syria .

    Could it be that used well , the refugee crisis can be an occasion to bring many back to The Church
    whose ancestors might have been victims of forced conversions .
    This can be by taking those who desire conversions but afraid to do so because of others around and those already in The Church to places of safe refuge such as in S.Sudan , at least for few years , till own lands are safe and stable enough .

    The Knights of Malta and such groups sponsoring and executing same might help for same not to be a political issue but as an act of reparation , in this Year of Fatima , helping the poor country of
    S.Sudan as well , who is also a victim of Islamic violence .
    Seen as a spiritual work of mercy ,
    its effects too could be far reaching , in even curtailing the over all violence around .
