Off the Shelf 039 with Derya Little – From Islam to Christ

episode-039-derya_little-resizedDerya M. Little has a PhD in politics from Durham University, England and an MA in history from Bilkent University, Turkey. Her articles on foreign affairs have appeared in academic journals and Catholic World Report. She converted from Islam to Catholicism in her early twenties, and now is living in Pennsylvania with her husband and three children.

She is the author of the book From Islam to Christ: One Woman’s Path through the Riddles of God published by Ignatius Press. In this episode Derya and I discuss the Muslim culture in Turkey and how it impacted her life. We also take a walk through her conversion story….and what a process it was! From Islam, to atheist, then Evangelical Christian, until her final arrival home in the Catholic faith, Derya has a unique tale to tell that is well worth listening to.
