We revisit our 2012 interview with popular Christian evangelical author and speaker Joni Eareckson Tada about the role of faith in her battle with breast cancer; look back at our report on mass incarcerations in the U.S. and the challenges facing prison ministries; and reprise a recent story on the origin and meaning of whirling dervishes in Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam.
When we interviewed Joni Eareckson Tada in 2010, the popular evangelical author and speaker had just been diagnosed with breast cancer. Now, two years later, we speak with Tada, a quadriplegic, about her battle with the disease and how it has affected her marriage and her faith.
