Derya Little 2019-01-27T08:24:07-04:00

Born and raised in Muslim Turkey, Derya Little rejected her family’s Islamic faith and became an atheist after her parents’ divorce. During her stormy adolescence, she tried to convince a Christian missionary that there is no God but was converted to Christ instead.

While attending a Turkish university and serving as a Christian youth minister, Derya began to compare the teachings of Protestantism and Catholicism, and during her doctoral studies in England, she entered the Catholic Church.

Little has an MA in History and a PhD in Politics. She has written articles for academic journals, Catholic World Report, Crisis Magazine, National Catholic Register and other Catholic publications.  Her conversion story, From Islam to Christ, is published by Ignatius Press.

How can we come alive in this dead culture? How can we share the Faith with Muslims and atheists? How can we talk to lukewarm Catholics, agnostics and anyone in between?
Join the conversation to swim against the stream.
Let’s “Live a Little” and bring the lost to life together!

#3 From Catholicism to Islam, and Back Again with George Nicolas

George Nicolas was baptized Catholic. He had a comfortable childhood where Christianity was an occasional side note. When he wondered what the meaning of life was, Islam presented an answer that was worthy of listening. Over a decade after his conversion to Islam, thanks to ISIS and Twitter, he started to truly question his faith.

George was confirmed in the Church of his baptism after an encounter with Christ in the Eucharist. Listen to this amazing story that touches on the troubles of lukewarm Christianity and the need for a robust religion.

#2 Explaining the Trinity and the Incarnation to Muslims

The most common objections of Islam to Christianity are the Trinity and the Incarnation. In this episode, we will look into St. Thomas’ De Rationibus Fidei to explain Muslims (and anyone else) that Christianity is not polytheistic and the Incarnation is the ultimate expression of God’s love for us.
