Anne Rice on Called Out of Darkness

John J. Miller has a new Between the Covers podcast up.  This one is with Anne Rice:

. . . on her new memoir about returning to the Catholic Church after many years away from it. This is an important public conversation—first and foremost, it’s an embrace of faith and a rejection of atheism. From looking through her book, it’s clear that Rice has some liberal theological views (ordination of women, for instance), but this is a footnote compared to the larger point. Her belief is deep and compelling.

In the podcast, we discuss why she left and then came back to Catholicism, what she now thinks of Interview with the Vampire and her other novels, the portrayal of Christians on TV and in the movies, and what book she recommends for Halloween.
