Morsi's Failed Experiment in Egypt August 29, 2013
In 2012, when Egyptians were wondering how to build a new government, the Muslim Brotherhood seemed to have the answers. Holding up the Koran as a guide, the group offered morality, righteousness and clarity. But after only a year in office, its presidential candidate, Mohamed Morsi, was ousted by the Egyptian military. So where did the Brotherhood go wrong?

The First Woman to Lead America's Evangelical Lutherans August 29, 2013
