Featured Video: The Miracles Event with Eric Metaxas and Dick Cavett

Featured Video: Eric Metaxas Interviews Cal Thomas and Bob Beckel

For the first time in SITC history  Eric Metaxas interviews not one, but two guests! Columnist Cal Thomas and political pundit Bob Beckel are political adversaries—AND good friends. Be prepared for surprisingly poignant moments amidst lively banter in a conversation centered around Thomas's book, What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America.

Featured Video: Eric Metaxas Interviews Hugh Hewitt

Radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt has conducted more than 10,000 interviews and as a rule opts not to interview comedians because "three hours later you don't know what happened, the paper's all gone, people are laughing, and nothing's been done." Here Hewitt ends up on the other side of an interview with the very funny Eric Metaxas as they discuss Hugh's book, The Happiest Life.

Featured Video: David and Goliath with Malcolm Gladwell

Eric Metaxas and best-selling phenomenon Malcolm Gladwell discuss Gladwell's latest book, David and Goliath, along the way touching on acromegaly, getting busted at immigration, the "practical" side of "grace", Chuck Colson, "stop and frisk", the ill-effects of attending a prestigious college, his own changed view of the power of faith, and much more.

Featured Video: Man and Woman with Alice von Hildebrand

"You're not going to have an easy time. Because I'm going to put you on the hot seat." So declares our first nonagenarian guest, Alice von Hildebrand, to Socrates host Eric Metaxas as they begin this conversation about her life and writings. If you think the years have dulled Dame von Hildebrand's fire, wit, and passion, be prepared to be happily flabbergasted!

Featured Video: Darwin's Doubt with Stephen Meyer

Charles Darwin, the scientific method, Danny DeVito, and Cher all manage to find a place in this mind-boggling and entertaining conversation between Eric Metaxas and Stephen Meyer.

Featured Video: Gala Interview with Christian Wiman

Eric Metaxas discusses poetry, faith, and Trans Ams (or was it Camaros?) with Christian Wiman, author of My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer, at the Socrates Gala held in June. Watch it here!
