The Leap Of Faith

On tonight's programme, what would you be willing to lose because of a firmly held conviction or belief?

The Leap of Faith Friday January 17th

On the Leap of Faith this week, BBC broadcaster Adrian Chiles talks about his conversion to the Roman Catholic Church. What motivated his decision and, as a convert, what is his perspective on his chosen faith? 

We also review the latest film from writer-director Terrence Malick, A Hidden Life, the story of an unsung hero Franz Jägerstätter now Blessed, who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. Dr Patrick Houlihan Ast' Professor of Twentieth-Century European History at TCD shares his interpretation of this story of faith, love and religious tension.
