Christianity, Islam and Radical Islam – Is There Hope? Part 2

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Explained – Tuesday, Nov. 11

Former CIA Officer and Middle East Specialist Continues His Discussion from the October Breakfast

Tom Carroll our speaker on October 14th captivated an audience of 125+.  Carrol stayed long after the breakfast to try and answer the questions that were coming from members and guest lined up three deep around the speaker’s table.  Carroll’s topic explains the high level of interest and engagement

Christianity, Islam and Radical Islam – Is There Hope?

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Explained – 

Former CIA Officer and Middle East Specialist Pulls Back the Curtain on Social, Religious and Cultural Conflict Convulsing the Region

Not only did Carroll explain how radical Islam evolved within moderate Islam, he took the audience by surprise showing how the Muslim beliefs are actually intertwined with the roots of Christianity.  The questions from the audience were overwhelming.  But he ran out time with many questions unanswered.  The topic is so important and timely that we are moving Fr. McCloskey, our scheduled November speaker, to next year and bringing back Tom Carroll for an encore engagement, the first encore engagement in Catholics@Work thirteen year history.

The format for this talk will be a little different.  Carroll will do a quick review, expanded on a point or two that he made in October and provide a couple of additional provocative thoughts.  Our usual format is the majority of the time the speaker tells his/her story and there is 10 minutes for Q&A.  This month the speaker will limit his talk and the majority of the time will be for Q&A
