Guest: Alex Kronemer, Co-founder, Unity Productions Foundation The images of Islam in the press are so often connected with terrorism and violence. That perception is very much on the mind of the creators of a new film called “The Sultan and the Saint” that will be airing on PBS on December 26. It is about an encounter between Saint Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt during the Crusades, when the Christian army was intent on destroying non-Christians. Their story is a lesson for us today. Learn more about the film here.
